|Personal Information||Emperor Go-Reizei of Japan (1023 - 1068)|
Emperor Go-Reizei (後冷泉天皇 Go-Reizei-tennō) was the 70th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.
Go-Reizei's reign spanned the years 1045 – 1068.
This 11th century sovereign was named after the 10th century Emperor Reizei and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Reizei". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Reizei, the second," or as "Reizei II."
