Emperor Kōan (孝安天皇 Kōan-tennō) was the 6th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kōan to be a legendary person; and the name Kōan-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.
The Gukanshō ruled from the palace of Akitsushima-no-miya at Muro in what will come to be known as Yamato province.
Emperor Kōan was the second son of Emperor Kōshō. Jinnō Shōtōki records that his mother was Yosotarashi-no-hime, who was the daughter of Okitsuyoso, and ancestress of the Owari.
