Xu Jing (died September or October 222),[1] courtesy name Wenxiu, was an official of the state of Shu Han in the early Three Kingdoms period of China. After Liu Zhang announced his submission to Liu Bei, Xu Jing swore his allegiance to Liu Bei. Like his cousin Xu Shao, Xu Jing was famous for being a good character evaluator. After Liu Bei was declared himself emperor and established the Shu Han state in 221, he appointed Xu Jing as Minister over the Masses, an office ranking just below Imperial Chancellor (held by Zhuge Liang). Xu Jing died in 222 after holding office for about one year or less.
