Li Na (daughter of Mao Zedong)
|Born||1940 (age 73–74)|
|Alma mater||Peking University|
|Children||Xu Xiaonin/Wang Xiaozi|
Li Na (simplified Chinese: 李讷; traditional Chinese: 李訥; pinyin: Lĭ Nà; born 1940), or Li Ne, is the daughter of Mao Zedong and his fourth wife Jiang Qing, and their only child together. Her surname is Li rather than Mao, because her father used the pseudonym "Li Desheng" (simplified Chinese: 李得胜; traditional Chinese: 李得勝) for a period of time during the Chinese Civil War.
She was a member of the 10th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 1973, and the Party Chief of CPC Pinggu County Committee and Deputy Secretary of CPC Beijing Committee from 1974 to 1975.
Since 2003, Li Na has been a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
- Li Na pronounced her own name as "Li Na" (see, e.g., a television interview by Yangguang Weishi (阳光卫视)). The traditional pronunciation of the character "讷" was "Nà"; however, in Modern Standard Chinese it has shifted to "Nè": see "讷" in 辞海, Shanghai Literary Press, 1999, ISBN 7-5326-0702-X. See also contemporary dictionaries which only list the "Nè" pronunciation, e.g.: Xinhua Zidian p.357, Commercial Press 1998, ISBN 7-100-02601-6 ; Modern Chinese Dictionary (现代汉语词典), 5th edition, p.986, Commercial Press 2005, ISBN 7-100-04385-9 ; Ancient and Modern Chinese Dictionary (古今汉语词典), p.1024, Commercial Press 2000, ISBN 7-100-02822-1 ; Xinhua Chinese Dictionary (新华汉语词典), p.887, Commercial Press 2004, ISBN 7-80103-362-0 . Some reliable sources also call her Li Ne (see, e.g., New mood of open-minded politics gaining ground in China, Xinhua News Agency, March 4, 2003). However, some other reliable sources call her Li Na.
