Zhili was a province in northern China from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) until it was dissolved in 1928. It was one of the 18 provinces sometimes called China proper.

After 1928, much of what had been Zhili became the province of Hebei. Other parts are now the municipalities of Beijing and Tianjin.
