Lin Liheng (Chinese: 林立衡; pinyin: Lín Lìhéng; born 1944) is the daughter of Lin Biao and Ye Qun, nicknamed "Dou Dou" (lit. bean bean) because Lin Biao loved eating beans.


Lin Liheng was born in Yan'an. She went with her father, Lin Biao, to Moscow when she was six years old.

After Lin Biao died in 1971 in the "Lin Biao Incident" (or "September-13th Incident", 九一三事件), Lin Liheng was investigated and put into custody by the government, even though she was the one that informed Zhou Enlai.[1][2] She was suffering, and had attempted suicide.[3] However, due to Mao Zedong's order, she was not further interrogated, and was released in 1974. Then she married her boyfriend and worked in a factory in Zhengzhou. She later went to Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

On November 1, 2014, Lin Liheng publicly appeared on a symposium of Chinese Red Army descendants and gave speeches; this attracted media's attention.[4]
