General Note:
This scene depicts the powerful Chinese arniy subduing the hapless Mongolian forces. In the background Russian gunboats are looming. In 1911 Mongolia had proclaimed her independence from China and established a monarchy with King Jebtsundamba Khutuktu here referred to as a royal prince. Since these Mongolian leaders were quite inexperienced in governing their newly established country, it easily became a pawn in the diplomatic game played by her two neighbours, Russia and China. The Sino- Russian accord of 1913 had weakened the Mongolian independence and by the time of the Treaty of Khiakta of 1915 Mongolia had become just another territory under Chinese suzerainty. Due to the Russian revolution of 1917, and under the pretext of protecting Mongolia from the Russians, China assumed her control over Mongolia by a military intervention, of which a scene is shown in this print.
