Chinese Revolutionary Party

The Chinese Revolutionary Party (Chinese: 中華革命黨; pinyin: Zhōnghúa Gémìngdǎng) was the short lived renaming of the Kuomintang between 1914 and 1919.[1]

After the failed Second Revolution against Tokyo, Japan. Sun was disappointed with the failure of many members to support the revolution. Personal oaths of loyalty and fingerprinting caused many older members to balk at joining.

After Yuan died in 1916, the National Assembly was reconvened. Many who were elected under as KMT used the Revolutionary name interchangeably with the older name. The overseas branches continued to use the old KMT name.

When the Assembly was disbanded again in 1917, Sun formed a rival government in Guangzhou with the backing of the Old Guangxi Clique. When these generals tried to marginalise and dilute his authority, he moved to Shanghai and renamed the party to the Chinese Kuomintang in 1919. The name has remained unchanged since.
