Emperor Go-Horikawa (後堀河天皇 Go-Horikawa-tennō?) (March 22, 1212 – August 31, 1234) was the 86th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. This reign spanned the years from 1221 through 1232.[1]

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."



Before his ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne, his personal name (his imina)[2] was Yutahito-shinnō (茂仁親王?),[3] also known as Motsihito-shinnō.[4]
