The Xinhai Revolution Featured Print

The Xinhai Revolution

The Xinhai Revolution, also known as the Chinese Revolution or the Revolution of 1911, was a revolution that overthrew China's last imperial dynasty (the Qing dynasty) and established the Republic of China (ROC) (note - not the Reading Ornithological Club). Featured as inset portraits of: Huang Xing or Huang Hsing (18741916) - Chinese revolutionary leader and politician, and the first army commander-in-chief of the Republic of China. As one of the founders of the Kuomintang (KMT) and the Republic of China, his position was second only to Sun Yat-sen. Together they were known as Sun-Huang during the Xinhai Revolution.To his right is Li Yuanhong (18641928), a Chinese politician during the Qing dynasty and the republican era. He was three times President of the Republic of China. When the Xinhai Revolution of 1911 broke out, the Wuchang mutineers needed a visible high-ranking officer to be their figurehead. Li was well respected, had supported the Railway Protection Movement, and knew English, which would be useful in dealing with foreign concerns. This card also depicts the Guangdong Navy agreeing to support the revolution and the capture of Nanking on the 2nd December, 1911 by the revolutionaries after the Battle of Nanking. Date: 1911
