Emperor Go-Uda (後宇多天皇 Go-Uda-tennō) (December 17, 1267 – July 16, 1324) was the 91st emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. His reign spanned the years from 1274 through 1287.[1]

This 13th century sovereign was named after the 9th century Emperor Uda and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he is sometimes called the "Later Emperor Uda". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Uda, the second," or as "Uda II."



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

He was the second son of Emperor Kameyama. They were from the Daikakuji line.

Events of Go-Uda's life

Yohito-shinnō became crown prince in 1268. According to the terms of the late emperor's will (Go-Saga died in 1272), in 1274, he would became emperor upon the death or abdication of Emperor Kameyama.

The retired Emperor Kameyama continued to exercise power as cloistered emperor.

  • 1275 (Bun'ei 11, 10th month): Hirohito-shinnō was named Crown Prince and heir to his first cousin, the Daikakuji-tō Emperor Go-Uda. This was the result of political maeuvering by Hirohito's father, the Jimyōin-tō Emperor Go-Fukakusa.[5]
