BIGpedia - Emperor Shomu of Japan - Encyclopedia and Dictionary Online (210 words)
Emperor Shōmu (聖武天皇) (701-756) was the 45th imperial ruler of Japan.
He was the son of Mommu and Fujiwara no Miyako, a daughter of Fujiwara no Fuhito.
The former emperor personally painted in the statue's irises at the opening ceremony in 752 and declared himself a servant of the Buddha, the Buddhist teaching and the Buddhist monastic establishment, making this the closest anyone ever came to declaring Japan a Buddhist nation.
Fujiwara family at AllExperts (1988 words)
Because consorts of crown princes, younger sons, and emperors were generally Fujiwara women, the male heads of the Fujiwara house were often the father-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, or maternal grandfather of the emperor.
The Fujiwara controlled the throne until the reign of Emperor Go-Sanjō (1068-73), the first emperor not born of a Fujiwara mother since the ninth century.
Emperor Go-Sanjō also established the In no chō, or Office of the Cloistered Emperor, which was held by a succession of emperors who abdicated to devote themselves to behind-the-scenes governance, or insei (Cloistered rule).
