Inner Mongolia (In Mongolian: br mongghul) is a region of the People's Republic of China which currently consists of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, with capital Hohhot.

Inner Mongolia is contrasted with Outer Mongolia, which consists of the independent nation of Mongolia. Inner/Outer reflects sinocentric view, derived from Manchu dorgi/tulergi. Mongolean people use North/South (aru/br) instead. Some Mongolian call it Southern Mongolia in English too.

History

Historically, the difference between Inner Mongolia and Outer Mongolia was that the Qing dynasty subdivided Inner Mongolia into standard Chinese provinces, while Outer Mongolia retained much of its pre-Qing governmental structure. Until 1949, Inner Mongolia was part of the provinces of Rehe, Suiyuan and some maps in Taiwan still show the pre-1949 structure. (Insert interesting history during WWII) In 1949, after the establishment of the People's Republic of China, the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region was established following Soviet nationalities policy.
