Chen Yuanda (died 316), courtesy name Changhong, was a Xiongnu minister of Han Zhao during the Sixteen Kingdoms period. Yuanda joined Liu Yuan during his establishment of his state in 304, becoming a mainstay in its early years. During the reign of Liu Cong, Yuanda was persistent in going against his emperor's wishes that many at the time were seen as inappropriate, usually revolving around his empresses. In 316, he and a group of ministers fought against the corrupted eunuch, Wang Chen and his inner circle after they had convinced Liu Cong to side with them. However, following the death of his friend Liu Yi (劉易) as a result of the debacle, Yuanda killed himself out of despair.
