The Guandong Coalition (Chinese: 廣東聯盟, Pinyin: Guǎngdōng Liánméng), translated as "Coalition East of the Mountains", was a coalition formed in the first month of the year 190 A.D. that opposed Dong Zhuo. Yuan Shao, being a descendant of great officials, was appointed as its leader.
The coalition failed to gain much succes and eventually the warlords turned against each other.
The coalition was divided in three forces:
- Yuan Shao, leader of the alliance, was north of the Yellow River, in Henei commandery.
- A second group occupied the southern bank of the river, east of the capital.
- A third group was commanded by Yuan Shu, with headquarters at Luyang in Nanyang.
