Kotohito (政仁, 29 June 1596 – 11 September 1680), posthumously honored as Emperor Go-Mizunoo (後水尾天皇, Gomizunō Tennō), was the 108th Emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.: 113–115  Go-Mizunoo's reign spanned the years from 1611 through 1629, and he was the first emperor to reign entirely during the Edo period. This 17th-century sovereign was named after the 9th-century Emperor Seiwa, sometimes posthumously referred to as Mizunoo (水尾) because this is the location of his tomb, and translates as "later", and thus, he could be called the "Later Emperor Mizunoo".
