On June 9, 1526, he became Emperor upon the death of Emperor Go-Kashiwabara. However, the Imperial Court was so impoverished, that a nation-wide appeal for contributions went out. Contributions from the Hōjō clan, the Ōuchi clan, the Imagawa clan, and other great daimyō clans of the Warring States Era allowed the Emperor to carry out the formal coronation ceremonies ten years later, on 2nd month 26th day of 1536.
The Imperial Court's poverty was so extreme, that the Emperor was forced to sell his calligraphy.
He died September 27, 1557
