Sun Yat Sen

Sun Yat-sen (12 November 1866 or 24 November 1870 – 12 March 1925), also known as Sun Yixian, Sun Wen, Sun Itchisen/Sun Itchiyama(Japanese) and Sun Zhongshan (originally Sun Deming), was a Chinese revolutionary and political leader often referred to as the Father of Modern China. Sun played an instrumental role in overthrowing the Qing Dynasty in 1911. He was the first provisional president when the Republic of China (ROC) was founded in 1912 and later co-founded the Kuomintang (KMT) where he served as its first leader. Sun was a uniting figure in post-Imperial China, and remains unique among 20th-century Chinese politicians for being widely revered in both Mainland China and Taiwan. (By Wikipedia) (Picture
