Fushimi acts as cloistered Emperor, but after a while, from 1313 to 1318, Go-Fushimi acts in that function During Hanazono's reign, Negotiations between the Bakufu and the two lines resulted in an agreement to alternate the throne between the two lines every 10 years (the Bumpō Agreement). This agreement did not last long, being broken by the Go-Daigo Emperor. Go-Fushimi was the author of a famous plea to the god of the Kamo shrine for help in gaining the throne for his son. This plea was ultimately successful, but it was not until thirty-three years after his abdication that Go-Fushimi's son, Kōgon became emperor.
