In The Historical Atlas of China, the earlier map of Yuan Dynasty is drawn in accordance with the administrative divisions in the seventeenth year of the Zhiyuan Period. However, it turns out that the historical evidence doesn’t support the existence of “Kai Cheng Fu” and “Jing Nan Lu”. As a matter of fact, “Kai Cheng Lu” and “Jiang Ling Lu” are their respective accurate names.

Key words: Kaicheng Fu, Kaicheng Lu, Jingnan Lu, Jiangling Lu
