Puyi (/ˈpuː ˈjiː/; simplified Chinese: 溥仪; traditional Chinese: 溥儀; pinyin: Pǔyí; 7 February 1906 – 17 October 1967) was the last Emperor of China as the 12th and final Emperor of the Qing dynasty, China's last imperial dynasty.

The recently released movie, The Last Emperor, has doubtless brought requests for books about Henry Pu-yi, as the hapless last Manchu emperor of China was known in the West. The chief source until now has been an autobiography, From Emperor to Citizen, published in Beijing in two volumes (1964-65; Oxford, 1987. The autobiography is marred by an awkward translation and the fact that it was written almost certainly under compulsion.

Henry Pu Yi is more commonly known as the last emperor. I was intrigued by the Title of this Book. He lived in Beijing, Manchuria, and Siberia before becoming an ordinary citizen of the People’s Republic of China. Reading it filled in many gaps in my understanding of China's Imperial System of governing which became very turbulent prior WW2. I ENJOYED "The Last Manchu".

The last of the Manchu emperors received a formal pardon on December 4th, 1959. The man known as Henry Pu Yi led one of the strangest lives of the 20th century. The last of the Manchu emperors, he succeeded to the throne as a boy of two in 1908. China fell into the hands of rival warlords and for a few days in 1917 Pu Yi was reinstated as emperor and then removed again. At 16 he was given four photographs of girls he had never met to choose from and provided with an imperial wife and an imperial concubine. He apparently took the name Henry out of admiration for Henry VIII of England.
