A new book sheds light on Kim Jong-un's brattish behaviour as a child at a private school in Switzerland.

The biography claims that the North Korean tyrant kicked and spat at his classmates when he heard them speaking German, a language he struggled to master.

The 'little dictator' was given a modified car by his dad, which he learnt to drive when he was just seven years old.

He also swaggered around with a Colt .45 pistol on his hip from the age of 11, according to The Great Successor: The Secret Rise and Rule of Kim Jong-un.

The book, penned by Washington Post journalist Anna Fifield, reveals the luxurious childhood of Kim Jong-un.

The youngster received the latest Super Mario games, pinball machines and high-tech gadgets, according to the Telegraph .

He also developed a taste for cinema, enjoying films such as James Bond, Dracula and Ben Hur in private soundproof theatres.

His despot father, Kim Jong-il, was renowned for being obsessed with movies, reportedly owning more than 20,000 videos and DVDs.

Kim Jong-un was 12-years-old when he was sent off to a prestigious school in Bern, Switzerland, in 1996.

The North Korean pupil went by the fake name of 'Pak Un' and originally lived with an aunt, before she defected to the US.

He was known for his fiery temper and indulging in trash talk during basketball games at the Swiss school.

The future dictator travelled around Europe using a forged passport, lapping up all that the continent had to offer.

His aunt, Ko Yong Suk, told Anna Fifield that she tried to create a family atmosphere at their home in Switzerland.

She said: "Their friends would come over, and I would make them snacks. It was a very normal childhood with birthday parties and gifts and Swiss kids coming over to play."

The relative added that his years in Switzerland showed him that he was a nobody outside of North Korea and convinced him of the need to maintain his father's regime.

Young Kim reportedly received a comprehensive historical education in Switzerland, with topics including Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela and the French Revolution.
