The Qing directly stationed Ambans in Lhasa along with a permanent garrison of Han Chinese and Manchu soldiers in the Lhasa garrison after Han general Yue Zhongqing conquered Tibet in 1720.

Manchu commanders were even more brutal to the Tibetan than Yue Zhongqi and butchered Tibetans during uprisings against the Qing in 1728 and 1751. The Manchu generals literally sliced Tibetan to death in public in Lhasa.

The Qing at first installed the Polha family to become princes of Tibet in 1727 after deposing the Dalai Lamas from power and slicing the Dalai Lamas supporters to death but after the Polha prince revolted in 1751 and a mob of Tibetan rebels killed the Manchu ambans Fucing and Labdon. The Qing Manchu general Bandi then slaughtered the Tibetan rebels by alicing them to death and killed the prince and reinstated the Dalai Lamas.

Manchus explicitly referred to ALL Qing territories including Tibet and Mongolia as Dulimbai Gurun, a direct value translation of the name for China, Zhongguo.

The Qing didn't have the concept of dual monarchy. The Qing emperor didn't have a separate title like "emperor of Tibet" he only had one official title, Huangdi (Emperor) of the Qing dynasty which was equated to Zhongguo.

New Qing historiography doesn't address the fact that Han soldiers were stationed in Tibet and Xinjiang over Tibetan and Uyghurs while Tibetans and Uyghurs were NEVER stationed in Han provinces as soldiers. Tibetan and Uyghurs also had zero representation in the Qing central government, Only Han, Mongol bannermen and Manchus did. And official Qing government documents like the Qing law code and imperial edicts were issued only in Chinese and Manchu and sometimes Mongol but never in Tibetan or Uyghur.

Uyghurs and Tibetans were never treated equally to Han, the Qing had Han Green Stabdard Armies in Lhasa in Tibet and Kashgar in Xinjiang but no Tibetan soldiers in Shanghai nor any Tibetan government ministers.

There is no justification for the current People's Republic of China to rule Taiwan.

The People's Republic of China has nothing to do with Taiwan.

The People's Republic of China and Qing are irrelevant, and the Mongol Empire and the People's Republic of China are also irrelevant.

There is no fact that the Chinese Communist Party inherited the Mongol Empire.
There is no fact that the Chinese Communist Party inherited the Qing dynasty.

The Chinese Communist Party has never ruled Taiwan.

The Mongol Empire / Qing Empire and the current People's Republic of China are unrelated.

Therefore, there is no justification for the Chinese Communist Party to rule Taiwan.
The Chinese Communist Party did not ceded Uighur and Tibet under a treaty with the Qing dynasty.

Nor did the Chinese Communist Party conclude a treaty with the Qing dynasty and promise to ceded Taiwan.

What is the legitimacy of the Chinese Communist Party to rule Uighur, Tibet and Taiwan?

It is the only armed aggression.

The Ming dynasty ruled and conquered the Jurchens and raped them during the Yongle emperor reign. The great wall is not a border.

The Han dynasty conquered and raped Xinjiang and the Tang dynasty also conquered and raped Xinjiang and also conquered Mongolia.

The Qing dynasty was the direct successor of the Ming dynasty and the Qing royal family Aisin Gioro were subjects of the Ming dynasty for 200 years in the Nurgan regional military commission and Jianzhou Jurchen guard.

been entertaining myself recently by reading and watching lots of stuff on Francisco Franco and it seems without seeming like a pol-tard one of the more justifiable coups/regimes.

the only real negative is that he didn't democratise the country sooner and was a little trigger happy with the reprisals but I'm sure both are relatively justifiable

Can someone explain the caste system within early Zoroastrian society that is alluded to in the Avesta? When did it appear and how many castes were there?
I imagine it wouldn't have been as sophisticated as late Hindu caste systems, but I am not too sure. Maybe there is a connection between the two?

Explain how the aryans expanded, conquered and then went back to Europe. Because that's definitely not what happened.

>Castes couldn't have existed
Castes have always existed in Pre-Islamic Iran, what are you talking about? This was always a cultural and ethnic thing for Iranians, why do you think even the lowest ranking Persian, a freeman, could still be held higher then a rich non-Iranian in feudalistic Parthia/Persia?

AFAIK there was no strict "castes" within a Zoroastrian society; there were priests that was usually always hereditary but anyone could become a priest. There was social mobility and people weren't stuck doibg the job of their ancestors forever.

If anything, I think the biggest concern/complaint of people was that Zoroastrians would get land grants from the state that disadvantaged non-Zoroastrians. Meaning there was Zoroastriabs as a whole, and non-Zoroaatrians and all Zoroastrians were equal before Ahura Mazda since all that do good were contributing to the Asha.

The Shahansah however enjoyed primacy as by being conferred Khvarenah the emperor became the very embodiment of the empire of Persia

how exactly does the chainmail covering the face protect from anything? arrows or weapons will still breach that layer, might as well use a shawl or a piece of cloth.
>arrows or weapons will still breach that layer,
common myth, chainmail was impervious to almost all forms of weaponry in the middle ages, and on account of that, as well as the laborious process of manufacturing it, was generally the single most expensive piece of equipment a soldier was likely to own - assuming he could afford even the aventail, let alone a full hauberk
it wasn't until the late middle ages/renaissance era that they invented bows and arrows that could reliably pierce mail, or thrusting swords like the estoc to stab them

I see these are part three of our thread seres of "Did Jesus exist?" and "Pinochet did nothing wrong." I see the copypasta shills have obtained automatic victory. I eagerly anticipate the sequel!

Makhnow convinced the landlords that thy made their money from their profession ND it made more sense to act a professional and not as a rentier. In this absence of insane psychopaths torturing everyone to wring taxes out of them, novel economic arrangements became possible and extreme patriotism came into being without propaganda and terror campaigns of the rest of the West.

Hell, yes.
They really don't.

Was its demise inevitable or could they have survived by avoiding or winning World War I? Would the proposals to reform the empire and improve representation to non-German/Hungarian minorities (Czechs, Poles, Croats, etc.) have worked?
There were always ethnic tensions under the surface but the empire wasn't on the verge of collapse until it faced the stresses of war. It's impossible to know if attempts at turning the empire into a federation would have secured it's long-term survival. We can assert that it would've been tough to reform due to the obvious resistance that Hungary would have mounted to said reforms.
The only way it could collapse was with foreign intervention.

Why did they provoke a war against Austria-Hungary in 1914 even though Austria was 10 times more populous?

Austria and Serbia both had legitimate issues, and they probably could have resolved them in one way or another without touching off a general European war if Germany, Russia, and France weren't all eager to use it as an excuse to smash the power balance in their favor.
The Serbs instinctive urge is to conquer.
To conquer in the turks name
here are the tribes that fought the turks
They had been occupying the territory for around three decades at that point even though it was de jure under the control of the Ottomans in accordance to the 1878 Treaty of Berlin. They feared the Young Turk revolution would have led to the Ottomans demanding a return to de facto control of the province. They attempted to make an agreement with the Russians in the sense that they would support Russian ambitions for greater influence regarding the Dardanelles. However, Russia was incapable of drumming up enough support for their ambitions and underestimated the public outcry at Austrian moves regarding Bosnia and so changed their tunes, bringing about greater tensions than the Austrians dared to dream.
