Ju (state)

Ju (Chinese: ; pinyin: ) was an Dongyi state in modern Shandong province during the Zhou dynasty (1046256 BCE) of ancient China.[1] The rulers of Ju had the surname of Ji 己.[2] According to the Shuowen Jiezi, "Ju" means taro or a wooden tool.[3] It was weakened by wars with the states of Chu and Qi. Eventually the state was annexed by Qi, and the City of Ju became a major stronghold of Qi.[4][5]
