AUTHOR: WANG WENXING (1914—2015)

Wang Wenxing (1914-2015) was the eldest daughter of Wang Jingwei (1883-1944) and Chen Bijun (1891-1959). Born in Toulouse, France, her courtesy name was Zhongwen. Her French name was Louise Michelle, after the 19th century revolutionary Louise Michel.

She was tutored by the scholar Qu Xiangbang and attended the Beijing Overseas Preparatory School with Ho Mang Hang (1916-2016) whom she married on February 26, 1939. Wang Wenxing was also a middle school student in Nanjing and studied education at the provincial college in Jiangsu.

She moved to Hong Kong in March 1948, where she became a school teacher until retirement. She emigrated to the United States in 1984 and co-founded the Wang Jingwei Irrevocable Trust with her husband in 2010 and passed away in New York City in 2015.
