Emperor Kōrei (孝霊天皇code: ja is deprecated , Kōrei-tennō) was the 7th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kōrei to be a legendary person; and the name Kōrei-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.
Kōrei is almost certainly a legend. The Kojiki records only his name and genealogy. The Nihonshoki includes Kōrei as the sixth of "eight undocumented monarchs" (欠史八代,code: ja is deprecated , Kesshi-hachidai).
Kōrei was the eldest son of Emperor Kōan. Jinnō Shōtōki records that his mother was Oshihime, who was the daughter of Ametarashihiko-Kunio-shihito-no-mikoto.
Events of Kōrei's life
The Kojiki notes that it was during Kōrei's reign that Kibi Province was conquered.
