Etymology[edit]

The first instance of a Qing emperor referring to the region now known as Xinjiang as 新疆 is found in the foreword of 欽定新疆識略 written by the Daoguang Emperor in 1820. Prior to that, the region now known as Xinjiang was referred to as 西域 (Xīyù, literally “Western Regions”), a name used since the Han dynasty, or also 西域新疆 (literally “new territory of the West Regions”), used since 1759. The word 新疆 then did not specifically refer to that region (Li, 1981).
