Instead, he agreed with his tutors' support of autocratic rule, and gradually became thoroughly 'Prussianized' under their influence. Amazed by the gift, the boy turns to talk to Puyi, but the emperor has disappeared. He had inherited from his mother a love of the British Royal Navywhich was at that time the world's largest. One memorable quotation from the interview was, "You English are mad, mad, mad as March hares.

      At war's end, the emperor is taken prisoner by the Russians; while incarcerated, he is forced to fend for himself without servants at his beck and call for the first time. The last Kaiser book as an adult by John Lone, Pu Yi puts into effect several social reforms, and also clears the palace of the corrupt eunuchs who've been shielding him from life. Bertolucci is able to make Pu Yi's imprisonment seem all the more ironic because this entire film was shot on location inside the People's Republic of China, and he was even given permission to film inside the Forbidden City - a vast, medieval complex covering some acres and containing 9, rooms only heaven, the Chinese believed, had 10, rooms. As the debate continued, Wilhelm became more and more interested in social problems, especially the treatment of mine workers who went on strike in Vice-Admiral Max von der Goltz was appointed in and remained in post until He destabilized the Iron Chancellor's foreign policy by failing to renew the Reinsurance Treaty with Russia, a decision that opened the way for Russia's alliance with France in

      Everything except one thing: the notion that a single human life could have infinite value. And in its own way, the Chinese revolution argued the same thing, The last Kaiser book making him into a gardener. In his speech, he even made remarks in favour of Moroccan independence, and this led to friction with France, which had expanding colonial interests in Morocco, and to the Algeciras Conferencewhich served largely to further isolate Germany in Europe. The Chinese have overturned the law of nations; they have mocked the sacredness of the envoy, the duties of hospitality in a way unheard of in world history. William was born with a withered armpossibly the result of cerebral palsyand many historians have sought in this a clue to his behavior in later life. In the recently established People's Republic of ChinaPuyi arrives as a political prisoner and war criminal at the Fushun Prison.
