Japan / 後嵯峨天皇 (Emperor Go-Saga)

Japan - 後嵯峨天皇 (Emperor Go-Saga) (1242 - 1246)

Emperor Go-Saga (後嵯峨天皇 Go-Saga-tennō) was the 88th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years 1242 through 1246.

This 13th-century sovereign was named after the 8th-century Emperor Saga and go- (後), translates literally as "later"; and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Saga". The Japanese word go has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Saga, the second," or as "Saga II."
