Provincial Military Commander

The provincial military commander (Chinese: ; pinyin: tíd?) was a high military official in the Chinese provinces of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911).[1] There was one in each province, ranked 1b.[1] Under the jurisdiction of the provincial governor ( xúnf?) and sometimes a governor-general, he was in charge of the Chinese military forces known as the Green Standards ( l?yíng), but had no control over the Eight Banners.[1] The provincial military commander is also known as provincial commander-in-chief and general-in-chief.[1]
