King Cheng of Zhou (ch 周成王 zhōu chéng wáng) or King Ch'eng of Chou was the second sovereign of the Chinese Zhou Dynasty.

King Cheng was young when he ascended the throne. His uncle, Archduke Zhougong (aka Duke of Zhou), fearing that Shang forces might rise again under the possible weak rule by a young ruler, became the regent and supervised government affairs for several years. Zhougong established the eastern capital at Luoyangmarker, and later defeated a rebellion by King Cheng's uncles the Cai Shu, Guan Shu and Huo Shu. King Cheng later stablized Zhou Dynasty's border by defeating several barbarian tribes along with Duke Zhougong.
