The title Hero of the Mongolian People's Republic was the highest distinction in the Mongolian People's Republic (MPR). It was modeled on the Soviet Union's highest award, the Hero of the Soviet Union title.
Soon after the victory of the Mongolian Revolution of 1921, the new government formed high degrees of distinction, which was appropriated by the Provisional People's Government . The first such title was the title of "Fearless Hero of the Mongolian People's State", which was awarded on September 23, 1922 to Damdin Sükhbaatar. On April 24, 1924, the title of "Unyielding People's Hero" was awarded to his colleague Khatanbaatar Magsarjav Two more Mongolian servicemen were awarded this title for heroism in battles on the border with Manchuria in 1936. In 1945, a special insignia was introduced for those awarded the title of Hero of the Mongolian People's Republic: the Gold Star of the Hero of the MPR.
