Emperor Ojin of Japan
According to the Kojiki and the Nihonshoki, Ojin was the son of the Emperor Chuai and the Empress Jingo. As Chuai died before Ojin's birth, his mother Jingo became regent. Ojin was born in 200 on the return of his mother from the invasion of Korea and named him Prince Homutawake. He became the crown prince at four years old. He was crowned in 270 at 70 years old and reigned for 40 years until his death in 310, although all the dates around his reign have no historical basis. He lived in two palaces both of which are in Osaka today.
He was recorded as the father of Nintoku, his successor.
