XIONG LI (Chinese : 熊麗, reigned 11th century BC) was an early ruler of the state of Chu during the early Zhou Dynasty of ancient China. He succeeded his father Yuxiong , who was the teacher of King Wen of Zhou , the first king of Zhou. Xiong Li's ancestral surname was Mi (芈), but he adopted the second character of his father's name – Xiong , literally "bear" – as the royal clan name of Chu, which is now the 72nd most common surname in China.

Xiong Li was succeeded by his son, Xiong Kuang , and his grandson Xiong Yi would later be enfeoffed by King Cheng of Zhou and granted the hereditary noble rank of viscount .
