Description

Emperor Go-Fushimi (後伏見天皇 Go-Fushimi-tennō) was the 93rd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years from 1298 to 1301.

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