Personal InformationEmperor Go-Fukakusa of Japan (1243 - 1304)

Emperor Go-Fukakusa (後深草天皇 Go-Fukakusa-tennō) was the 89th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years 1246 through 1260.

This 13th-century sovereign was named after the 9th-century Emperor Nimmyō and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he could be called the "Later Emperor Fukakusa". The Japanese word go has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Fukakusa, the second," or as "Fukakusa II."
