Description

Emperor Go-Ichijō (後一条天皇 Go-Ichijō-tennō) was the 68th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

Go-Ichijō's reign spanned the years from 1016 through 1036.

This 11th century sovereign was named after Emperor Ichijō and go- (後), translates literally as "later"; and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Ichijō". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one"; and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Ichijō, the second".
