List of Presidents of the ROC (since 1912)[edit]

This is a list of the Presidents of the Republic of China (1912–present). The Republic of China is now commonly known as "Taiwan" due to the Taiwan currently making up almost all of its de facto territory although the government-in-exile was recognized by the United Nations (to 25 October 1971), the United States (to 1 January 1979) and other Western countries. The Republic of China President is called 總統 (zǒngtǒng), and from 1912–1928, 大總統 (dàzǒngtǒng).

All the names on this list follow the Oriental convention with the family name first and given name second.

List of Presidents of the PRC (since 1949)[edit]

This is a list of all the Chairmen of the People's Republic of China (1954–1975) and the Presidents of the People's Republic of China (1982–present). The President of the PRC is called 主席 (zhǔxí), formerly translated as Chairman.

To avoid confusion, all the names on this list follow the Oriental convention (family name first, given name second) for consistency.
