Joseph Rock and the king of Muli, 1926

J F Rock and Muli king, originally uploaded by mutikonka.

Chote Chaba was the penultimate ruler of this tiny fiefdom, before he was murdered by a Chinese warlord in the 1930s. The local people of Muli [Wachang] still pay their respects to him, and say his grandson now lives in Beijing.
