Who was Tang Ching-sung?

Tang Ching-sung was a Chinese general and statesman. He commanded the Yunnan Army in the Sino-French War, and made an important contribution to China's military effort in Tonkin by persuading the Black Flag leader Liu Yung-fu to serve under Chinese command. His intelligent, though ultimately unsuccessful, direction of the Siege of Tuyen Quang was widely praised. He later became governor of the Chinese province of Taiwan. Following China's cession of Taiwan to Japan at the end of the First Sino-Japanese War he became president of the short-lived independent country Republic of Formosa.
