Yasuhito (Japanese: 慶仁, 14 January 1702 – 10 May 1737), posthumously honored as Emperor Nakamikado (中御門天皇, Nakamikado-tennō), was the 114th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. He was enthroned as Emperor in 1709, a reign that would last until 1735 with his abdication.As Emperor, Nakamikado had an increasingly warmed relationship with the shogunate in part due to his father's efforts. Relations warmed up to the point of family marriage talks but these fell through due to the sudden death of the potential Shōgun groom. Read more on Wikipedia
