Emperor Go-Fushimi (後伏見天皇 Go-Fushimi-tennō) (April 5, 1288 – May 17, 1336) was the 93rd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. His reign spanned the years from 1298 to 1301.[1]

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



Before his ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne, his personal name (his imina) was Tanehito-shinnō (胤仁親王?).[2]

He was the eldest son of the 92nd Emperor Emperor Fushimi. They belonged to the Jimyōin-tō branch of the Imperial Family.
