The Chinese Revolution of 1911 By: Lia Koklic, Jake Martinson, Aria Walls, and Sean Wu Before the Revolution: China is ruled under a Dynastic System
People did not like the system at all
People would revolt against tyrants, creating problems The year of 1911 starts the revolution as people start to think of new ways of governments and how the people should live with peace and prosperity among themselves. The Revolution Starts:

Recalled to control Beijing Army in 1911
Shikai takes over presidency from Yat-Sen
Yuan established himself as emperor and the monarchy was established again on January 1, 1916
March 1916 he dethrones himself but remains president Sun Yat-Sen Yuan Shi-Kai Revolutionary Leaders
(4.2.1) Chiang Kai-Shek The Dynastic System:
(4.1.2A) Sun Yat-Sen is known today as the founder of China.
He was the one who basically started the revolution
Sun wanted to replace the Dynastic system with a republic system
Leader of the Kuomintang
Went to Japan and got funds for the revolution Sun Yat-Sen
(2.1.1) KUOMINTANG: The Kuomintang(KMT) were a group of people that were led by Sun Yat-Sen himself. This group is also known as the Chinese Nationalist Peoples' Party. Sun wanted this group to have 3 of the most basic standards that he had in mind: "Nationalism", "Democracy", and "Peoples' livelihood". This was the group that replaced the Dynastic system with the republic system. After Sun Yat-Sen died Chiang Kai-Shek took over and brought most of South and Central China under his rule.
In 1927 Chiang and the Chinese Nationalist Peoples' Party(KMT) turned on the Chinese Communist Party(CCP), killing many of its leaders.
The remaining members of the CCP went on a "long march" to the most desolate terrain in the northwestern province of Shannxi and created a guerilla base. Chiang Kai-Shek 1111 A Republic System:
(4.1.2A) Nationalism: Loyalty to a nation
Democracy: A government by the people
Peoples' Livelihood: Everyone should have social welfare to begin with Government lost all control of the people
It was hard to control revolts
Military systems broke
Many foreigners threatened China http://www.mapsnworld.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/world-map.jpg http://english.jingyue.gov.cn/images/puyi.jpg Last Emperor of the Qing Dynasty,
Pu Yi Doing History/Connections imbalances in power within society/government
uprisings within the citizens
tyrants who were eventually kicked out
people being controlled by someone/something else Prediction: If there was a revolution in the future, then the causes of that would be that the government(s) are abusing their position of power and/or are not in favor of the citizens. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a1/Emblem_of_the_Kuomintang.svg/190px-Emblem_of_the_Kuomintang.svg.png http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/t/tw.gif Like us on Prezibook Thanks for watching! The system suggests that only one king can rule at a time
The next king would be the son of the current king
Kings always turned into tyrants like Louis XIV when he took over France
When the people did not like the king, they would replace the king with someone else
This new king would be from a different family, therefore creating another Dynasty When the Dynastic system fell, China became a Republic
China's life style completely changed
No tyrants
No unfair ruling
The Dynastic system was abandoned A group of people called the Manchus took out the Ming Dynasty and replaced it with the Qing Dynasty
The Qing Dynasty was the final Dynasty before the Republic, and contained many tyrants
People then completely wiped out the Dynastic system, which did harm to the nation... Government changed
Social organization changed because the people were viewed as equals
Everything else stayed the same AFTER CHINA BECAME A REPUBLIC... In most revolutions, there are usually Some revolutions that contain these things are: The American Revolution
The French Revolution
The Chinese Revolution of 1911 The Mexican Revolution
The Egyptian Revolution
The Indian Revolution
