The Southern Yan (Chinese: 南燕; pinyin: Nányàn; 398-410) was a state of Xianbei ethnicity during the era of Sixteen Kingdoms in China. Its territory roughly coincided with modern Shandong. Its founder Murong De was a son of Murong Huang and brother of Murong Jun and Murong Chui and therefore was an imperial prince during both Former Yan and Later Yan.

All rulers of the Former Yan declared themselves "emperors".
