Life

Go-Tsuchimikado ascended to the throne on August 21, 1464 after the abdication of his father, the Go-Hanazono Emperor. Shortly after his enthronement, the Ōnin War took place. Temples, shrines, and mansions of court nobles, among others, were burned to the ground. The Imperial Court's finances dried up, and the Court declined.

After the end of the War, there was little enthusiasm for reviving the Imperial Court's ancient ceremonies. On October 31, 1500, the Emperor passed away.
