Togtokhtör wang

Last updated

Bat-Ochiryn Togtokhtör (Mongolian : Бат-очирын Тогтохтөр, 15 September 1779 6 April 1868) known as To Wang (Mongolian : То ван) or as Hetsuu Wang Togtokhtör (Mongolian : Хэцүү ван Тогтохтөр) was a Mongolian nobleman and politician.

To Wang was the son of Bat-Ochir, the Zasag Noyan of the Khoshuu. At age 25, To Wang succeeded his father as the Noyan of the Khoshuu, was appointed Hebei Wang in 1839, and became leader of the Setsen Khan Aimag Assembly in 1859.

Prior to To Wang's rule, Tamsagbulag (located in modern-day Halhgol sum in Dornod aimag) had only one monastery. To Wang built several monasteries ("Соёлыг бадруулагч", "Хамгийг хамгаалагч"), and a palace as well as an artificial mountain, lake, dikes, and various establishments for metalwork, stone-masonry, carpentry, textile, and agriculture. Moreover, he doubled the number of livestock in the Khoshuu to 120,000. To Wang was instrumental to making Tamsagbulag a regional cultural center.

To Wang's "Хэбэй вангийн аж төрөх үйлийг заасан сургаал" (1853); a treatise on combining nomadic and sedentary living, is the first economics book published in Mongolia.

To Wang also compiled grammatical rules for the Mongolian script and published them as a textbook in the Khoshuu school.

To Wang died in 1868.

Mongolia under Qing rule was the rule of the Manchu-led Qing dynasty of China over the Mongolian Plateau, including the four Outer Mongolian aimags and the six Inner Mongolian aimags from the 17th century to the end of the dynasty. The term "Mongolia" is used here in the broader historical sense, and includes an area much larger than the modern-day state of Mongolia. Ligdan saw much of his power weakened due to the disunity of the Mongol tribes. He was subsequently defeated by the Later Jin dynasty and died soon afterwards. His son Ejei handed the Yuan imperial seal over to Hong Taiji in 1635, thus ending the rule of the Northern Yuan dynasty in Inner Mongolia. However, the Khalkha Mongols in Outer Mongolia continued to rule until they were overrun by the Dzungar Khanate in 1690, and they submitted to the Qing dynasty in 1691.
