China had a new emperor. His name was Guagnxu. He lasted 100 days. He tried to institute reforms of China’s military, its education system and government. b. Cixi reclaimed the Forbidden City.

    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.
