Sun Yaoting (Traditional Chinese: 孫耀庭, Simplified Chinese: 孙耀庭, Hanyu Pinyin: Sūn Yàotíng, Wade-Giles: Sun Yao-t'ing; 29 September 1902 – 17 December 1996) was the last surviving imperial eunuch of Chinese history. He was castrated at the age of eight by his father with a single swoop of a razor, mere months before the last emperor Pu Yi was deposed.
The 1988 dramatic film Lai Shi, China's Last Eunuch is based on Sun Yaoting's life.
