Du Meixia, daughter of Du Yuesheng, a Shanghai “Green Band” tycoon, died in Taiwan recently and will be buried with his mother-in-law Meng Xiaodong, according to Taiwanese media.

Du Meixia is the daughter of Du Yuesheng, the leader of the Qing Gang in Shanghai. Her mother-in-law is Meng Xiaodong, a famous

Beijing opera actress. She also served as the chairman of the Meng Xiaodong Women’s National Opera Award Foundation and

Du Yuesheng was a famous figure of the “Green Band” in the Shanghai Concession during the Republic of China. He was known as the “Three Big Bands of Shanghai” together with Jinrong and Zhang Xiaolin. The China Times described the Du family as “calling the wind and calling the rain” and “chattering about the wind and clouds” in Shanghai, but their life in Taiwan was low-key.

Du Meixia’s mother Yao Yulan is Du Yuesheng’s fourth wife, while Meng Xiaodong is Du Yuesheng’s fifth wife. As for Du Meixia’s life, Jin Zuwu, Du Meixia’s son, said that his mother was born as Miss Qianjin of the big family in Shanghai, but met with the turbulence of the great times and came to Taiwan.

Du Meixia and his righteous mother, Meng Xiaodong, had a good relationship. Before they were born, they decided that they would sleep with Meng Xiaodong for a long time, that is, the Buddhist cemetery of Jinglu Temple in the woodland area of Xinbei City. Jin Zuwu said, “They are there together, not alone.”

Jin Zuwu said, “Mother and Grandma Meng have good feelings, which is for a reason.” He had heard his mother say that during the Anti-Japanese War, the Japanese threatened to kidnap Du Meixia. Du Yuesheng

shaved her hair for Du Meixia’s personal safety and sent it to Meng Xiaodong’s residence. “My mother has lived with Grandma Meng since childhood, making them very close and friendly.”
