Movie: The Last Emperor On 1908 in Peking The emperor I-Sin-Ger-Oh-Who-Eee, son of prince Dredd, at the age of two, was crowned because emperorist Dowager was dieing. He was chosen because Dowager was his grandmother. The only thing that was bad was that they took him from his mother and gave him this lady that they called his “Wet nurse”, which mainly breast fed him and took care of him.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
