In 1911, a revolution launched by Chinese bourgeois revolutionaries against the feudal monarchy of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) broke out and swept across the country. Because 1911 was a Xinhai Year in the sexagenary circle of Chinese calendar, the struggle is commonly called Xinhai Revolution or the 1911 Revolution. It has gone down in Chinese history as an epoch-making event, which ended the autocratic monarchy that had reigned in China for more than 2,000 years and established a democratic republic in the country.
