Faina Ipatevna Vakhreva Chiang
Birth: May 15, 1916, Belarus
Death: Dec. 15, 2004
Taipei City, Taiwan

First Lady of the Republic of China. Also known as Chiang Fang-liang, she was the Belarussian wife of President Chiang Ching-kuo. Her family moved to Russia in World War I, but she was orphaned while still young and raised by her sister Anna. As a teenager she was a member of the Soviet Union's Communist Youth League. She met Chiang Ching-kuo while he was living in the Soviet Union, and they married on March 15, 1935. During her husband's political career with the Kuomintang, she kept a low profile due to her being Russian in a period of fervent anti-Communism. Even after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, she never returned to her native land. (bio by: Chris Nelson)
