It was a nice film. The guy did ressemble to Emperor Pu Yi. But as you are able to read in Youtube, the Emperor had not aby child...He could not be his grandson. Maybe his great-grand nephew.Prince Pu Chieh did have a daughter with his wife, Princess Hiro Saga. So, who knows?

Besides, I'm tired of the intolerant outburst of young people affiliated to Youtube.When visiting the link proposed by Beatrix, I read some disgusting post calling Manchu people "inferior race having distroyed Han culture and China" and laughing at them for using "these ridicoulous pigtails". Every time I goes to this site, I find unbearable expressions of racism and intolerance whithout soeaking of ignorance, who makes people offensive and violent whithout whanting to.

Vanesa.

Youtube doesn't have a very good monitoring policy it has to be said. I knew Puyi didn't have any children and I assumed this guy was some kind of descendant from a brother or cousin or something but as you say, who knows? I doubt it'll go down well with the authorities to have a self-proclaimed Emperor running around so it might be better for him to be quiet about these things.

If it was Russia, I would say yes...But China is another bussiness. China is a very complex country. As far as I know, Emperor's Pu Yi family always worked for the Communist Party and had good relationships with governement. One of Emperor Pu Yi's uncles was representant of the Manchu minority in Chinese Congress.

True and Puyi himself wrote a book saying he had seen the light and was now a committed communist. Whether he was or not, well, I have my doubts.

Hmmm. The poor man wanted to save his life. He was able to know he should never have his throne back, and only tried to live a quiet, happy, private life...which he never could. He liked to be took as an old fool man who would loosed his glasses everywhere as long as he was able to live whithout being noticed.

He has been an Emperor that, in fact, never ruled (other would rule for him), and that was a prisoner almost all his life. We may understand easily that his later years, he would want to be simply...a man.

Vanesa.

I agree. Nobody dare stand up to Mao and Puyi was no different. I don't think he actually liked the Imperial ways or being Emperor, I certainly get that from the reforms he brought to the Forbidden City. It's sad that China fell before he could make those reforms nationwide.

I see you have a lot of info about Pu Yi's family. I just want to know if there is some descendant of him from his sisters and brothers. I know Pu Ren is alive ...but did he have any son or daughter?

Thank you, Gino! So there ARE descendants of Pu Yi in China, and the one who wrote there wasn't under the Youtube's video was saying nonsense! I don't mean that the guy appearing in the video IS a descendant of the Royal Family, but at least he COULD BE...

Vanesa.

Yes. I've read this too. But the article brokened my heart all the same. Poor Emperor. He was alone in this life. He had always been alone. I do not know if Li was a good woman or really a witch, but he seemed to have loved her and needed her.

Poor man. He was the loneliest of the Emperors.

Vanesa.

I originally posted this latest news in the Member's Corner of the foprums, but I thought I would post it here since it has to do with the Imperial family.

Chinese archeologists believe an ancient tomb discovered four years ago may be that of the third and last emperor of the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC).

Oh that's just brutal . . robbing the tomb (1927, if my memory serves me right; that would have been during the Northern Expedition led by Chain-Kai Shek to rid the Communists from the KMT).

Even more brutal a picture of her body after the robbery
