Nah, it's nostalgia - which ain't what it used to be.

The heir to the throne of China, Jin Youzhi, is dead at 96:

 

http://www.cankaoxia...10/738039.shtml(obit in chinese)

 

His best claim to fame is being the half-brother of the Last Emperor of China, immortalized in the epic movie whose soundtrack I listened to just yesterday.

I know somebody also picked him in the DDP, so a better obit is needed.

Edit: Indeed, it would be a unique hit for the "not yet gone, but still forgotten" theme team, which actually supports its name by having 19 unique picks.

To be perfectly accurate, he was "heir to the Manchu throne under the rule of primogeniture, but he repudiated his claim":

http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Jin_Youzhi

The last emperor Puyi had no children, so the claim fell to his brother who then also died, and then Youzhi, also known as Puren, was next in line. In fact, many deposed dynasties still claim thrones that no longer exist.

For example, "According to them (the Legitimists), the current heir to the French throne, if restored, is Louis Alphonse, Duke of Anjou"

Which shows that the Russian revolutionary approach to deposed royals has its merits.
