Warlords Vie for Control of China Ca. 1922Unknown - 1922
In 1915 military commanders in various provinces under Chinese president Yuan Shikai declared independence from his rule. Shikai declared himself emperor of China in 1916, but was unable to suppress the rebellions and was forced to reinstate the republic. Shikai's death in June 1916 further fractured the country, and the warlords, all of whom had once served under Shikai, competed for control of Beijing, Shikai's original seat of power.
