Emperor Go-En'yū

Emperor Go-En'yū (後円融天皇, Go-En'yū-tennō) (11 January 1359 – 6 June 1393) was the "5th" of the Ashikaga Pretenders during the period of two courts in Japan.

According to pre-Meiji scholars, his reign spanned the years from 1371 through 1382.This Nanboku-chō "sovereign" was named after the 10th century Emperor En'yū and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he may be called the "Later Emperor En'yū".

The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this would-be emperor may be identified as "En'yū, the second", or as "En'yū II."
