This paper examines the reality of what has been called "the Qing rule of Tibet" from 1720 to 1727. During this period the main purpose of the Qing policy toward Tibet was to check the pro-Dsungar group by promoting the influence of Khan-chen-nas within the Tibetan government. While denouncing Dsungar as a destroyer of dGe-lugs-pa and an aggressor of Tibet, the Qing government attempted to stabilize Tibetan politics by legitimizing Khan-chen-nas, Dsungar's opponent, through the approval of the Seventh Dalai-lama. The Qing government, however, had to confront the ahti-Khan-chen-nas group. To resolve the conflict, the Qing government dispatched Ambans to support Khan-chen-nas and to protect the Dalai-lama. In short, the dispatch of Ambans was not a means of direct control over Tibet but an effort to promote the alliance between the Dalai-lama and Khan-chen-nas.
