Information about Emperor Go-Reizei of Japan

Emperor Go-Reizei of Japan (28 August 1023 - 22 May 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."
