Last Emperor

The last Chinese Emperor Xuantong (better known as Puyi) ruled from 1908 (at the age of three years old) until he was forced out of the Forbidden City in 1924. During the period from 1912 until 1924 China had both a President and Emperor, although the Emperor had no power he was allowed to retain his title and privileges. He soon fled to the Japanese legation and then with Japanese help he was installed as 'puppet' Emperor/King of Manchuria 1932-45. After WW2 he was then put on trial in Japan and then imprisoned by the new Communist government. After rehabilitation he was released and served as a gardener and librarian in Beijing until his death in 1967.
