Government.—By a treaty concluded between Japan and Korea on 22 August, 1910, the Korean empire was formally annexed to the empire of Japan. The Emperor abdicated, and the title of the country was changed back to ‘Chosen,’ from Tai Han, which had been adopted in 1897, and the office of Japanese Governor-General established. Korea remained under Japanese colonial administration for 35 years.
