Yan (燕), also known as the Great Yan (大燕), was a state established in 756 by the Tang Dynasty general An Lushan, after he rebelled against the reign of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang in 755. The state was extinguished in 763, when the son of An Lushan's subordinate Shi Siming, Shi Chaoyi, the last person to claim the title as Yan's emperor, was killed.
