Li-Ching Yuen (claimed 1677/1736?- 6 May 1933) was a Chinese herbalist who it was claimed by others to have lived to be 256. He claimed to be born in 1736, which would have made him 197 at the time of his death (citation needed).


Li-Ching Yuen was born at an uncertain date in Qijiang Xian, Sichuan, Qing Empire. He spent most of his life in the mountains and was skilled in Qigong. He worked as a herbalist and selling herbs and lived off a diet with rice wine.

It was generally accepted that he was a literate child in Sichuan, and that by his tenth birthday he gathered herbs, continuing with this occupation for over a century. It was after this, he relocated to Kai Xian. At age 72, he worked as an army of martial arts and a tactical advisor.

In 1927, Yang Sen invited him to his residence in Wai Xian, Sichuan.

He died of natural causes on 6 May 1933 allegedly at the claimed age of 256 (or 197).
