King Xi of Zhou (died 677 BC) (Chinese: 周僖王; pinyin: Zhōu Xī Wáng), personal name Jī Húqí, was the sixteenth king of the Chinese Zhou dynasty and the fourth of the Eastern Zhou.[1]

He was a successor of his father King Zhuang of Zhou,[2] and was succeeded by his son, King Hui of Zhou.

By his time China had dissolved into a multitude of states, only nominally subject to the king, who was no longer even the most powerful figure in China (that was Duke Huán of the State of Qí).[3]
