Born in Zhongshan in south China’s Guangdong Province, Sun Yat-sen (November 12, 1866 – March 12, 1925) was a great national hero, patriot and pioneer of China’s democratic revolution.

Sun, whose courtesy name was Wen, and was self-titled Yixian, threw himself into the revolutionary cause of struggling against imperialism after he founded the Revive China Society in 1894, creating China’s modern national democratic revolution.

Under the leadership of Sun, the Xinhai Revolution, also known as the Revolution of 1911 or the Chinese Revolution, overthrew China's last imperial dynasty, the Qing , in 1911, ending the autocratic monarchy system that lasted for thousands of years in China and established the Republic of China (ROC). The revolution was named Xinhai (Hsin-hai) because it occurred in 1911, the year of the Xinhai stem-branch on the sexagenary cycle of the Chinese calendar.

Sun’s historic contributions to national independence, social progress and people’s happiness have been published in the annals of world history.
