Description

Emperor Go-Uda (後宇多天皇 Go-Uda-tennō) was the 91st emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years from 1274 through 1287.

This 13th-century sovereign was named after the 9th-century Emperor Uda and go- (後), translates literally as "later"; and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Uda". The Japanese word go has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Uda, the second," or as "Uda II."
