Emperor Sujin (崇神天皇 Sujin-tennō) was the 10th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Sujin to be a legendary person; and the name Sujin-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 records that Sujin ruled from the palace of Mizogaki-no-miya at Shiki in what will come to be known Yamato province.
Some scholars question the existence of the first nine emperors. These critics consider Sujin to be the earliest to have actually existed.
