Mongols. The same name is also given to a Mongolian dialectspoken in the area of Chahar.
The Chahar were originally one of estates of Khubilai located around Jingzhao (now

Altan Khan, the Chahar, led by Darayisun, moved eastward onto the Liao Riverin the middle of the 16th century. In the early 17th century Ligden Khanmade an expedition to the west because of the Manchupressure. When he died in Gansuon his way to Tibet, his son surrendered to the Manchu.
The Chahar royal family kept favorable relations with the Manchu imperial family until
Makata Gege, who was a daughter of Hong Taijiand married to the Chahar prince, died in 1663. When the Rebellion of the Three Feudatorieserupted in 1673, the Chahar prince revolted against the Qing Dynasty. He was soon crushed and, as a result, the Chahar were reorganized into the Chahar Eight Banners and moved to around Janjhuu Hill. The Chahar did not belong to a league ("chuulghan") but were directly controlled by the Emperor.
