Emperor Annei (安寧天皇code: ja is deprecated , Annei-tennō) was the 3rd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Annei to be a legendary person, and the name Annei-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No firm dates can be assigned to this emperor's life or reign. The conventionally accepted names and sequence of the early emperors were not to be confirmed as "traditional" until the reign of Emperor Kammu, who was the 50th monarch of the Yamato dynasty.
Annei is almost certainly a legend. The Kojiki records only his name and genealogy. The Nihonshoki includes Annei as the second of "eight undocumented monarchs" (欠史八代,code: ja is deprecated , Kesshi-hachidai).
The Gukanshō records that Annei was either the eldest son or the only son of Emperor Suizei.
During reign of Emperor Annei, the capital of Japan was at Katashiha, Kawachi.
Events of Annei's life
The absence of information about Annei does not imply that no such person ever existed. Very little information is available for study prior to the reign of the 29th monarch, Emperor Kimmei (509?-571).
The spirit (kami) of Emperor Annei and the events of his life are enshrined at Annei-tennō-sha at Shirakashi in Yamato province.
