The earliest history of Mongolians in Yunnan can be traced to 1252, over 700 years ago, when the army of Kublai Khan, the fifth emperor of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) marched south and conquered Yunnan. When the Yuan Dynasty collapsed, the Yuan soldiers and officers stayed and lived on in the mountains of Yunnan, establishing a Mongolian ethnic community. According to the latest census, there are 13,168 Mongolians living in the Xingmeng Mongolian Township in Tonghai County, Tiejiapo in Zhenyuan County, as well as Anning and Xichou Counties.
From classical works of literature and tablets recording the history of Mongolians in Yunnan, a great deal can be found tracing the exploits of Mongolian men. As for Mongolian women, no historical records can be found. More than 700 years have passed. The heroic stories of the Mongolian men have become hackneyed. However, the tragic stories of the Mongolian women still move our hearts.
