Huaxinghui leader in Tokyo in 1905

The Huaxinghui ( Chinese  華興 會 , Pinyin Huáxìnghuì  - “ Society for the Revival of the Chinese Nation ”) was one of the three most important and largest revolutionary groups that tried to change the political order of China at the beginning of the twentieth century.

It was founded on February 15, 1904 by Huang Xing and Zhang Shizhao in Hunan with the aim of overthrowing the Qing Dynasty . In 1905 it merged with the Xingzhonghui and Guangfuhui to form the Tongmenghui , which in 1911 became part of the KMT (Koumingtang) in order to exploit the overthrow of the monarchy by a soldiers' uprising.
