Kujo Yoritsune (九条 頼経 Kujō Yoritsune) (February 12, 1218–September 1, 1256) was the fourth shogun (r. 1226–1244) of the Kamakura shogunate of Japan. His father was kampaku Kujo Michiie and his grandmother was a niece of Minamoto no Yoritomo. He was born in the year (according to Chinese astrology) of the tiger, in the month of the tiger, on the day of the tiger, and so his given name at birth was Mitora(三寅), "Triple Tiger."
