In the 12–13th centuries, the Barga Mongols
appeared as tribes near Lake Baikal, named Bargujin. Genghis Khan's ancestor Alan Gua was of Barga ancestry. In the Mongol Empire, they served the Great Khans' armies. One of them named Ambaghai commanded the artillery. 14th to 17th centuries[edit] After the fall of the Yuan dynasty
Yuan dynasty
in 1368, the Barga joined the Oirats
against the Genghisids. However, they were scattered among the Mongols
and Oirats. The Barga share the same 11 clans into which the Khori- Buryats
were divided. The main body of Khori-Barga moved to the area between Ergune river and the Greater Khingan Range
Greater Khingan Range
where they became subject to the Daurs
and Solon Ewenkis. A large body of Barga Khoris fled back east to the Onon river in 1594. While some came under Russian rule, others became tributary to the Khalkha. Qing dynasty[edit] When the Qing dynasty
Qing dynasty
attacked the Cossacks
in the Ergune and Shilka rivers in 1685–89, those Barga Mongols
east of the Ergune River were deported to Manchuria. The Qing court dispersed them among the Chahar banners. They predominantly live Hulunbuir
since the 17th century. Relocation[edit] In 1734, the Barga Mongols
who had been left under the Khalkha
noyans complained of the mistreatment of their lords and the Qing authority selected 2,400 Barga Mongols
in Khalkha
and stationed them with their families in Khölönbuir, Dornod. References[edit]
