The provincial military commander (Chinese: ; pinyin: ) was a high military official in the Chinese provinces of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). There was one in each province, ranked 1b. Under the jurisdiction of the provincial governor ( xúnf?) and sometimes a governor-general, he was in charge of the Chinese military forces known as the Green Standards ( l?yíng), but had no control over the Eight Banners. The provincial military commander is also known as provincial commander-in-chief and general-in-chief.
