Hua Xin (157–231),[1][2] courtesy name Ziyu, was a politician who lived in the late Eastern Han dynasty. He was initially an official serving directly under the Han central government, but later switched to serving under the warlord Sun Ce and then under the warlord Cao Cao. After the Eastern Han dynasty was replaced by the state of Cao Wei in 220, Hua Xin continued serving as an official under the Wei regime.

(太和五年,歆薨,謚曰敬侯。) An annotation from the Wei Shu mentioned that he was 75 years old (by East Asian age reckoning) when he died. (魏書云:歆時年七十五。) By calculation, Hua Xin's birth year should be around 157.
