The Later Liang (simplified Chinese: 后凉; traditional Chinese: 後凉; pinyin: Hòu Liáng; 386-403) was a state of the Sixteen Kingdoms during the Jin Dynasty (265-420) in China.[1] It was founded by the family of the Di ethnicity.

All rulers of the Later Liang proclaimed themselves "Heavenly Prince" (Tian Wang).
