Emperor Chūai (仲哀天皇, Chūai-tennō) was the 14th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Chūai to be a legendary person, and the name Chūai-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No certain 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.
