First Sino-Japanese War


The First Sino-Japanese War was a conflict between Japan and China over control of Korea, and it originally involved only Japan and China, but during the conclusion of the war – the Treaty of Shimonoseki – Russia, France and Germany formed what is known as the Triple Intervention. In the treaty, Japan was attempting to claim the Liaodong peninsula as a part of the peace, but the Triple Intervention intervened and prevented them from doing so, for fear that a Russian port in the area would be affected.
