The Bogd Khan or VIII Bogd Jebtsundamba Khutuktu (1869–1924) was the secret sponsor of Mongolian Independence Revolution of 1921 which ended centuries of Chinese occupation of Mongolia. Following the departure of the Chinese, the People’s Party founded a new government, but kept the Bogd Khan as nominal head of state.
The Bogd Khan financed the revolutionary activities under the secret name of Butkov. The letters from the seven men who led the Mongolian Revolution to the Bogd Khaan asking for finance, have being kept in the General Archival Authority.
On Wednesday 1 May, the General Archival Authority presented 60 vitally important scripts and documents to and from the Bogd Khan. The exhibition, which is at the National Museum of Mongolia will last for a month.
This year, Mongolia is marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Bogd Khan.
