Information about Emperor Go-Sanjō of Japan

Emperor Go-Sanjō of Japan (3 September 1034 - 15 June 1073)

Emperor Go-Sanjō (後三条天皇 Go-Sanjō-tennō) was the 71st emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

Go-Sanjō's reign spanned the years from 1068 through 1073.

This 11th century sovereign was named after Emperor Sanjō and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Sanjō". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Sanjō, the second," or as "Sanjo II."
