Description

Soong Meiling was the daughter of a wealthy Chinese businessman. Chiang had originally met Soong Meiling in 1920 but her family were not in favour of marriage as Chiang was not a Christian. When Chiang promised to convert to Christianity, the marriage received the Soong family's blessing. After 1949, Meiling accompanied Chiang to Taiwan whilst her sister, Ching-Ling, remained on the mainland in support of the Communists.
