Emperor Chukyo of Japan
Emperor Chūkyō (仲恭天皇) (1218-1234) was the 85th imperial ruler of Japan. He ruled in 1221, and was not officially listed as an emperor until 1870 due to doubts caused by the length of his reign. Chūkyō took the throne as an infant following the abdication of his father, Emperor Juntoku, but his grandfather, the former emperor Go-Toba staged a rebellion to overthrown the shogun. The rebellion, known as the Jukyo incident , was a failure. As a result, the emperor deposed Chūkyō and replaced him with Go-Toba's nephew, Go-Horikawa.
