Emperor Go-Suzaku (後朱雀天皇 Go-Suzaku-tennō?, December 14, 1009 – February 7, 1045) was the 69th emperor of Japan,[1] according to the traditional order of succession.[2]

Go-Suzaku's reign spanned the years from 1036 through 1045.[3]

This 11th century sovereign was named after the 10th century Emperor Suzaku and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Suzaku". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Suzaku, the second" or as "Suzaku II."
