Han Xuan (fl. 200s–210) was a government official and minor warlord who lived during the late Eastern Han dynasty of China. He served as the Administrator (太守) of Changsha Commandery (長沙郡; around present-day Changsha, Hunan) and was a subordinate of Liu Biao, the Governor of Jing Province (which Changsha Commandery was part of), for about three years. After Liu Biao's death in 208, the northern part of Jing Province was divided between two of Liu Biao's sons, Liu Qi and Liu Cong. The commanderies in southern Jing Province were ruled by their respective Administrators: Zhao Fan, Jin Xuan, Liu Du and Han Xuan. Changsha Commandery became a semi-independent territory under Han Xuan and remained relatively undisturbed for another two years until the warlord Liu Bei attacked the four commanderies in 209 and conquered them.
