Emperor An of Han China, ch. 漢安帝, py. hn ān d, wg. Han An-ti, (94-125) was an emperor of the Chinese Han Dynasty and the sixth emperor of the Eastern Han period ruling from 106 AD to 125 AD. He was the grandson of Emperor Zhang.

Empress dowager Deng raised Liu Hu (劉祜 Lu H), the twelve-year old cousin of Shangdi and future Emperor Han Andi, in the palace as the successor to the throne as insurance against the baby emperor's death. Liu Hu ascended to the throne when Shangdi passed away in August or September 106 AD; however, Dowager Deng still remained as the regent until her death in 121 AD. Thereafter. Emperor An ordered the execution of all the remaining relatives of the late Empress dowager.

An did little to revive withering dynasty. He began to indulged himself in women and heavy drinking and pay little attention to affairs of state instead leaving matters to corrupt eunuchs. At the same time, droughts ravaged the country while peasants rose up in arms. In 125 AD, An died while travelling to Nanyang. He was only 32.
