    Always cut out excess. I would write it "At the age of two, Puyi was made King of Mongolia (Khevt Yos Khan) and King of China."

    When "King" is part of the title, there's no need for "the". Use "the" for a generic title.

    Catherine the Great was the queen of Russia in [dates]. She was crowned Queen of Russia in [date].
