Japan / 後堀河天皇 (Emperor Go-Horikawa)

Japan - 後堀河天皇 (Emperor Go-Horikawa) (1221 - 1232)

Emperor Go-Horikawa (後堀河天皇 Go-Horikawa-tennō) was the 86th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years from 1221 through 1232.

This 13th-century sovereign was named after the 10th-century Emperor Horikawa and go- (後), translates literally as "later"; and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Horikawa". The Japanese word go has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Horikawa, the second," or as "Horikawa II."
