The Last Manchu: The Autobiography of Henry Pu Yi, Last Emperor of China


In 1908 on the age of 2, Henry Pu Yi ascended to turn into the final emperor of the centuries-old Manchu dynasty. After revolutionaries compelled Pu Yi to abdicate in 1911, the younger emperor lived for 13 years in Peking’s Forbidden urban, yet without any of the facility his delivery afforded him. the rest of Pu Yi’s existence was once lived out in a topsy-turvy type: fleeing from a chinese language warlord, changing into head of a eastern puppet country, being restrained to a Russian felony in Siberia, and enduring taxing exertions. The final Manchu is a distinct, enchanting checklist of China’s so much turbulent, dramatic years.
