Pyeong-an Province ([p?], Korean; Hanja) was one of Eight Provinces of Korea during the Joseon. Pyeong'an was located in the northwest of Korea. The provincial capital was Pyeongyang (now Pyongyang, North Korea).


Pyeong'an Province was formed in 1413. Its name derived from the names of two of its principal cities, Pyeongyang (Korean: ; Hanja: ) and Anju (Korean: ; Hanja: ).

In 1895, the province was replaced by the Districts of Ganggye (Korean: ; Hanja: ) in the northeast, Uiju County (Korean: ; Hanja: ) in the northwest, and Pyeongyang (Korean: ; Hanja: ) in the south.

In 1896, Kanggye and ?iju Districts were reorganized into North Pyongan Province, and Pyeongyang District was reorganized as South Pyongan Province. North and South Pyongan Provinces are part of North Korea.


Pyeong'an was bounded on the east by Hamgyeong Province, on the south by Hwanghae Province, on the west by the Yellow Sea, and on the north by Imperial China.

The regional name for the province was Gwanseo.
