Soong Ching-ling

Soong Ching-ling (宋庆龄 pinyin: song4 qing4 ling2) was one of the Soong sisters -three sisters whose husbands were amongst China's most significant political figures of the early 20th century. She was described as the "one who loved China".

She married Sun Yat-sen in 1914. After Sun's death in 1925, she sided with the Communists in the Chinese Civil War against the Kuomintang. Later, she rose to a high position in the government of Communist China. Unlike her younger sister Soong May-ling, who sided with her husband Chiang Kai-shek and fled to Taiwan, Soong Ching-ling is greatly revered in mainland China.
