Emperor Go-Daigo

Emperor Go-Daigo was the 96th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. He overthrew the Kamakura shogunate in 1333 and established the short lived Kenmu Restoration to bring the Imperial House back into power; this was to be the last time the emperor had any power until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. The Kenmu restoration was in turn overthrown by Ashikaga Takauji in 1336, ushering in the Ashikaga shogunate, split the imperial family into two opposing factions between the Ashikaga backed Northern Court situated in Kyoto and the Southern Court based in Yoshino led by Go-Daigo and his successors; this 14th-century sovereign chose his posthumous name after the 9th-century Emperor Daigo and go-, translates as "later", he is thus sometimes called the "Later Emperor Daigo", or, in some older sources, "Daigo, the second" or as "Daigo II". Before his ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne, his personal name was Takaharu-shinnō, he was the second son of Emperor Go-Uda. His mother was daughter of Fujiwara no Tadatsugu.

She became. His older brother was Emperor Go-Nijō. Emperor Go-Daigo's ideal was the Engi era during the reign of Emperor Daigo, a period of direct imperial rule. An emperor's posthumous name was chosen after his death, but Emperor Go-Daigo chose his during his lifetime, to share it with Emperor Daigo. 1308: At the death of Emperor Go-Nijō, Hanazono accedes to the Chrysanthemum Throne at age 12 years. 29 March 1318: In the 11th year of Hanazono's reign, the emperor abdicated. Shortly thereafter, Emperor Go-Daigo is said to have acceded to the throne. 1319: Emperor Go-Daigo caused the nengō to be changed to Gen'ō to mark the beginning of his reign. In 1324, with the discovery of Emperor Go-Daigo's plans to overthrow the Kamakura shogunate, the Rokuhara Tandai disposed of his close associate Hino Suketomo in the Shōchū Incident. In the Genkō Incident of 1331, Emperor Go-Daigo's plans were again discovered, this time by a betrayal by his close associate Yoshida Sadafusa, he hid the Sacred Treasures in a secluded castle in Kasagiyama and raised an army, but the castle fell to the shogunate's army the following year, they enthroned Emperor Kōgon, exiling Daigo to Oki Province, the same place to which Emperor Go-Toba had been exiled after the Jōkyū War of 1221.

In 1333, Emperor Go-Daigo escaped from Oki with the help of Nawa Nagatoshi and his family, raising an army at Senjo Mountain in Hōki Province. Ashikaga Takauji, sent by the shogunate to find and destroy this army, sided with the emperor and captured the Rokuhara Tandai. Following this, Nitta Yoshisada, who had raised an army in the east, laid siege to Kamakura; when the city fell to Nitta, Hōjō Takatoki, the shogunal regent, fled to Tōshō temple, where he and his entire family committed suicide. This paved the way for a new military regime. Upon his triumphal return to Kyoto, Daigo took the throne from Emperor Kōgon and began the Kenmu Restoration; the Restoration was ostensibly a revival of the older ways, but, in fact, the emperor had his eye set on an imperial dictatorship like that of the emperor of China. He wanted to become the most powerful ruler in the East. Impatient reforms, litigation over land rights and the exclusion of the samurai from the political order caused much complaining, his political order began to fall apart.

In 1335, Ashikaga Takauji, who had travelled to eastern Japan without obtaining an imperial edict in order to suppress the Nakasendai Rebellion, became disaffected. Daigo ordered Nitta Yoshisada to destroy Ashikaga. Ashikaga defeated Nitta Yoshisada at the Battle of Hakone. Kusunoki Masashige and Kitabatake Akiie, in communication with Kyoto, smashed the Ashikaga army. Takauji fled to Kyūshū, but the following year, after reassembling his army, he again approached Kyōto. Kusunoki Masashige proposed a reconciliation with Takauji to the emperor, but Go-Daigo rejected this, he ordered Yoshisada to destroy Takauji. Kusunoki's army was defeated at the Battle of Minatogawa; when Ashikaga's army entered Kyōto, Emperor Go-Daigo resisted, fleeing to Mount Hiei, but seeking reconciliation, he sent the imperial regalia to the Ashikaga side. Takauji enthroned the Jimyōin-tō emperor, Kōmyō, began his shogunate with the enactment of the Kenmu Law Code. Go-Daigo escaped from the capital in January 1337, the regalia that he had handed over to the Ashikaga being counterfeit, set up the Southern Court among the mountains of Yoshino, beginning the Period of Northern and Southern Courts in which the Northern Dynasty in Kyoto and the Southern Dynasty in Yoshino faced off against each other.

Emperor Go-Daigo ordered Imperial Prince Kaneyoshi to Kyūshū and Nitta Yoshisada and Imperial Prince Tsuneyoshi to Hokuriku, so forth, dispatching his sons all over, so that they could oppose the Northern Court. 18 September 1339: In the 21st year of Go-Daigo's reign, the emperor abdicated at Yoshino in favor of his

Seven Sinners (1925 film)

Seven Sinners is a 1925 American black-and-white silent comedy crime film directed by Lewis Milestone and written by Milestone and Darryl F. Zanuck; the film was produced by Warner Bros. Pictures. Although Milestone had directed short training films for the U. S. War Department in 1918 and 1919, acted as assistant director on the 1921 William A. Seiter film The Foolish Age, this was his feature film directorial debut. Burglars Molly Brian and Joe Hagney break into the Vickers mansion on Long Island and loot the safe but are caught in the act by another crook, Jerry Winters, who takes the money from them; the three are confronted by Pious Joe McDowell and his wife Mamie crooks, but who assert themselves as friends of the Vickers family. Molly and Jerry introduce themselves in turn as Vickers' household servants. A doctor quarantines the house. Unknown to the first five, the Doctor and patient are crooks who use the ruse of a "quarantine" as part of their own methodology. During the brief quarantine, Molly ends up falling in love with Jerry and the two pledge to go straight.

When the police arrive, Pious Joe takes responsibility for the robbery so that Molly and Jerry can escape. Marie Prevost as Molly Brian Clive Brook as Jerry Winters John Patrick as Handsome Joe Hagney Heinie Conklin as Scarlet Fever Sanders Claude Gillingwater as Pious Joe McDowell Mathilde Brundage as Mamie McDowell Dan Mason as Doctor Fred Kelsey as Policeman The New York Times wrote the idea "has been worked out in an interesting fashion, with disappointing penitence as a closing touch," and that "picture is quite diverting, it would have been better if the humor were lighter in some sequences and if a touch of satire had been included at the finish." The film was presumed lost when Jack Warner destroyed many of its negatives in the December 1948 due to nitrate film pre-1933 decomposition, but an announcement was made in May 2015 of its rediscovery in Queensland, Australia. The restored version of Seven Sinners was shown in Queensland, Australia, on February 19, 2017; the film is planned released by Warner Bros.
