Beiyang army led by Yuan Shikai, a general of the imperial Qing government, controlled the national government in Beijing from 1912 to 1928 and reinstated monarchy in China (Empire of China, 1915–1916). After Yuan’s death in 1916, the country was divided and controlled by military cliques from 1916 to 1928 (the Warlord Era). In 1949, KMT government retreated to Taiwan after losing the Chinese civil war.
