Aisin-Gioro Pu-Yi, formerly Emperor Xuantong of the Great Qing was returned to his ancestral homeland of Manchuria and on March 1, 1932 was installed as 'Chief Executive' of the Manchu State. In 1934, he was officially enthroned as emperor of the "Great Manchu Empire" with the reign name of Kang Teh (康德). Despite public solidarity he often clashed with the Japanese sponsors of the state. The Emperor's brother, Prince Pu-Chieh was named heir to the throne after his marriage to a Japanese princess. At the end of World War II the Emperor Kang Teh was forced to abdicate as Soviet troops invaded in 1945, after the atomic bombing of Japan.
