Situated between Jingzhou and Yangzhou during the Eastern Jin Dynasty, Yuzhou was then confronted with the nomadic regime in the north, and adjacent to Jiangzhou in the south. Tucked under the arm, it was not only a key town to guard the middle and lower reaches of the ChangJiang River, but also an important impetus to connect the forces of the north and the south. By probing into the historical materials, this paper scrutinizes the relationship between Yuzhou and Xifu in the Eastern Jin Dynasty, and investigates the successors and changes of Yuzhou′s prefecture governor in history, and classifies the role of Yuzhou played in the struggles among the celebrative families and the North-South war.
