The Viceroy of Liangguang or of the Two Guangs was the anglicized form of the Governor-General of the Two Expanses (Chineset 兩廣總督, s 两广总督, p Liǎngguǎng Zǒngdū) who administered the viceroyalty of Liangguang—the two provinces of Guangdong and Guangxi together—in the Qing Empire between the 18th and the 20th centuries. They were one of 8 such viceroys during that time.
