Liang Qichao

Liang Qichao, who called himself, among other names, Yinbingshi Zhuren (Master of the Ice-drinking Room), was born on February 23, 1873 in Xinhui, Guangdong Province. By the time he was six years old, he had already read the Four Books and Five Classics. In the autumn of 1890, Liang Qichao became a pupil of Kang Youwei (1858-1927), under whose influence Liang experienced a change in his thinking.
