Emperor Suizei (綏靖天皇code: ja is deprecated , Suizei-tennō) was the 2nd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Suizei to be a legendary person, and the name Suizei-tennō was created for him after his death 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.
Suizei is almost certainly a legend. The Kojiki records only his name and genealogy. The Nihonshoki includes Suizei as the earliest or first of "eight undocumented monarchs" (欠史八代,code: ja is deprecated , Kesshi-hachidai).
The Gukanshō records that Suizei was one of the sons of Emperor Jimmu.
During reign of Emperor Suizei, the capital of Japan was at Kazuraki, Yamato.
Events of Suizei's life
The Kojiki includes a story about how Suizei attained the throne. His older brother supported Suizei because of his courage.
The absence of information about Suizei 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).
