During the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history (770-476 BCE), Yunmeng County formed part of the Zhou Dynasty vassal State of Yun, later annexed by the State of Chu whose kings used the area as a hunting ground. After Chu's defeat at the hands of the State of Qin in 223 BCE, Yunmeng became part of Qin territory. Legend suggests that China's first emperor Qin Shi Huang visited the county in 219 BCE. Yunmeng was the location of the Jiangxia Commandery of the Han Dynasty and the cradle of the Chinese Huang Clan.
