Description

Emperor Go-Tsuchimikado (後土御門天皇 Go-tsuchimikado-tennō) was the 103rd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years from 1464 through 1500.

This 15th-century sovereign was named after the 12th-century Emperor Tsuchimikado and go- (後), translates literally as "later"; and thus, he could be called the "Later Emperor Tsuchimikado". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Tsuchimikado, the second", or as "Tsuchimikado II".
