Japan / 後鳥羽天皇 (Emperor Go-Toba)

Japan - 後鳥羽天皇 (Emperor Go-Toba) (1183 - 1198)

Emperor Go-Toba (後鳥羽天皇 Go-Toba-tennō) was the 82nd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

His reign spanned the years from 1183 through 1198.

This 12th-century sovereign was named after Emperor Toba, and go- (後), translates literally as "later"; and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Toba". The Japanese word go has also been translated to mean the "second one"; and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Toba the Second" or as "Toba II".
