Description

Emperor Go-Nijō (後二条天皇 Go-Nijō-tennō) was the 94th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

He reigned from March 3, 1301 until September 10, 1308.

This 14th-century sovereign was named after the 12th-century Emperor Nijō, and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Nijō". The Japanese word go has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Nijō, the second," or as "Nijo II."
