Wikipedia definition
2. ChanyuChanyu was the title used by the nomadic supreme rulers of Middle and Central Asia for 8 centuries and superseded by the title "Khagan"" in 402 CE. The title was used by the nomadic Xiongnu Luanti clan during the Qin (221-206 BCE) and Han dynasties (206 BCE–220 CE). The reason 'Chanyu' is preferable to 'Shanyu' is to be found in the Guangyun, a dictionary compiled in 601 CE by Lu Fayan and completed during the Song dynasty from 1007 to 1011.
