Quote:So one parent's Chinese (Han?) the other parent is English and on his father's side he's descended from a Mongol?
I suggested that his father's family was Manchu, not Chinese Han.
The Mandarin's relatives were probably very influent before the Chinese Revolution.
Back then, the country was ruled by the Manchu Qing dynasty of the Aisin Gioro clan.
The Aisin Gioro and Borjigit clans (= the clan of Genghis Khan) had a long history of political marriages, so the emperor had to choose a Borjigit woman to be his empress consort in order to keep up with tradition.
Some of the Mandarin's ancestors might have been Khorchin Mongols. They were the first Mongol tribe that submitted to Qing dynasty. The later emperors of the Manchu Qing dynasty rewarded the Khorchin nobles highly for this early loyalty.
Let's suppose that some of the Mandarin's relatives were mandarins during the reign of the Qing Dynasty before the Chinese Revolution, it would explain the nickname.
