T he name of Chu was the same as the name for the respected First Emperor of Qin’s father. Thus, Chu was renamed as Jing of Jingshan (currently Nanzhang). Later, Hubei was often named as Jing. Sometimes, Hubei was named Jingchu. In the Western Han Dynasty, Emperor Wu divided China into 13 states. The main part of Hubei belonged to Jingzhou. From Three Kingdoms Period to the unification of China in the Western Jin Dynasty, most regions within the territory of Hubei were also subordinated to Jingzhou. At the beginning of Northern Song Dynasty, Jinghubei Road was constructed from the north of Dongting Lake to Jingshan, including Yuan River and Li River, which was named Hubei Road for short. Since then, the name, Hubei, came into use. In Yuan Dynasty, the southeast part of Hubei, Hunan, and Guangxi were divided as Huguang Province, consisting of states such as Xiangyang, Huangzhou, Qizhou, Xingguo, Xiazhou, Wuchang, Jiangling (Zhongxing) and prefectures such as De’an, Mianyang, and Anlu.
