Zhang Zuolin (1875-1928), the founder of the Fengtian Clique of the Beiyang Army opposed all other warlord military factions. In the years between 1916 and 1928 his Fengtian Army controlled Manchuria (now Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning Provinces). In November 1926 an alliance between the Fengtian and Zhili factions was formed to counter the advances of the National Revolutionary Army's Northern Expedition. Zhang was appointed as the Generalissimo of the last Beiyang (Peiyang) government in 1927. During the Northern Expedition, the Kuomintang publicly accused Zhang as a national traitor in league with Japan. Ironically, Zhang was assassinated by the Japanese army in 皇姑屯 [Huanggutun] on 4 June 1928.
