Actually, the reason the Qing Dynasty collapsed was because they refused to accept the new Western ideals - take Japan for example. When Admiral Perry's fleet sailed into Edo, there was a massive backlash against the emperor. Soon after, the Japanese began to embrace new technology and ideals and took it in stride. Even before WWII, Japan was one of the most technogically advanced countries in Asia. If the Qing Dynasty under Empress Dowager Tzu Si had decided to open the gates to foreigners, China might be enjoying the same circumstances that Japan has today. Instead, she ignored the Industrial Revolution and spent much of the nation's money building the summer palace, which left the Imperial Navy so undersupplied that some ships didn't even have cannonballs on them.

If we had accepted change, China would probably be a constitutional monarchy like Japan today, in which the royal family holds no power, but they at least have a symbolic position.

Actually, YES... Taiwan may be considered as an independent country by foreigners due to popular belief, but Taiwan is actually a special administrative region of China (in a way that it was given it's own policies, governance and what-so-ever; that others think that it's a country) Taiwan gained it's provincial status in 1947 when it was joined to the Fujian province, but after it was separated it is now China's 23rd province. And can I just recall that Taiwan's official and legal name is Republic of China ? ROFL

There's a common misconception about Taiwan and China. China is called "People's Republic of China" while Taiwan's called "Republic of China." So the real question should have been "Does the Republic of China belong to the PRC?" That would be much more clear.

I don't know. I know that Mandrian is used quite frequently but was mandrian forced onto the taiwanese or did the taiwanese have their own language first? I honestly don't know much about the situation so I can't say what belongs to what. I was just wondering if Taiwan has always belonged to China or did China say that because some chinese fled over to taiwain that it belongs to them or what. I have not a clue. I really would like to know though.

To make this answer short and concise...

Taiwan never separated from China. Here is a short history lesson.

China (including mainland and Taiwan) was called Republic of China from 1912 to 1945

The Republic of China was established in 1912 to replace the Qing Dynasty, ending 4,000+ years of imperial rule in China.



The civil war between the Communist Party and Kuomintang (ruling party at time) resulted in mainland Chinese who had fled to Taiwan in or around 1949, at the end of the Chinese Civil War.


Kuomintang claimed Taiwan as Republic of China and the Communist Party claimed mainland China as People's Republic of China (PRC).

By 1970s, most nations and the UN recognized PRC instead of Taiwan.

If there were a key date, it would be the formation of People's Republic of China in 1949.

People should regard Taiwan not as being separated, but rather a civil war that was never finished.
