Later Yen Dynasty

This empire was founded in 384 CE by a rebel general from the Hsiung'nu federation, one Mu-jung Ch'uei, who was Hsien-pi in origin. The dynasty of another Mu-jung, the Western Yen, was annexed in 394.

It was one of the Shih-liu kuo, the Sixteen Kingdoms, that dominated northern China during the 4th and early 5th centuries CE. Lacking administrative experience, they relied heavily on co-opted local leaders, scribes, and priests.
