Yujiulü Anagui (Chinese: 郁久閭阿那瓌; pinyin: Yùjiǔlǘ Ānàgūi) (?-552) was khan of the Rouran (520-552) with the title of Chiliantoubingdoufa Khan (敕連頭兵豆伐可汗). He was succeeded by Yujiulü Tiefa.

Yujiulü Anagui arranged for his daughter to be married to the Han Chinese ruler Gao Huan of the Eastern Wei.[1][2]

When Bumin Qaghan wanted to marry a princess of the royal family, Anagui sent an emissary to Bumin to rebuke him, saying, "You are my blacksmith slave. How dare you utter these words?".[3][4][5][6]

Some time between February 11 - March 10, 552, Anagui was defeated by Bumin in the north of Huaihuang (in present-day Zhangjiakou, Hebei) and committed suicide.[7]

  2. ^ Gao Huan, as demanded by Yujiulü Anagui as one of the peace terms between Eastern Wei and Rouran, married the Princess Ruru in 545, and had her take the place of Princess Lou as his wife, but never formally divorced Princess Lou. After Gao Huan's death, pursuant to Rouran customs, the Princess Ruru became married to Gao Huan's son Gao Cheng, who also, however, did not formally divorce his wife.
