He did NOT become the emperor at thirteen. He was thirty-five when he united and ruled China!

In reference to the last comment. I didn't write this article, but I agree that he did not start his reign at 13. However, he was not 35 in 221BC because he died in 210BC which would make him 46. He was 50 when he died.
