Huarui Furen (c. 940 - 976) was a female Chinese poet.

She was the favorite concubine of Emperor Meng Chang of Later Shu (934-965), one of the Ten Kingdoms that China was split up in after the fall of the Tang Dynasty in 907. Shu was located in Sichuan.

When Emperor Taizu of Song defeated Meng Cheng, Huarui Furen was captured. Emperor Taizu had heard of her fame as a poet and asked her to recite a poem for him. In the poem she chose for that occasion, she laments the cowardliness of the Shu forces and her being kept in ignorance of their surrender within the palace walls.
