During the early Republic of China, the rank of "grand marshal of the army and navy" (陸海軍大元帥) was assumed by Yuan Shikai in 1913, Sun Yat-sen in 1917 and Zhang Zuolin in 1927. The rank was replaced by the Nationalist Government with the "general special class" or "generalissimo" (特級上將) and awarded to Chiang Kai-shek in 1935.
