Japan / 後円融天皇 (Emperor Go-En'yū) - Pretender

Japan - 後円融天皇 (Emperor Go-En'yū) - Pretender (9 April 1371 - 24 May 1382)

Emperor Go-En'yū (後円融天皇 Go-En'yū-tennō) was the 5th of the Ashikaga Pretenders during the period of two courts.

According to pre-Meiji scholars, his reign spanned the years from 1371 through 1382.

This Nanboku-chō "sovereign" was named after the 10th century Emperor En'yū and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he may be called the "Later Emperor En'yū". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one"; and in some older sources, this would-be emperor may be identified as "En'yū, the second", or as "En'yū II".
