Tomb of Emperor Go-Ichijô, in Kyoto
  • Died: 1036
  • Reign: 1016-1036
  • Japanese: 後一条天皇 (Go-Ichijou tennou)

Emperor Go-Ichijô reigned from 1016, when he was about ten years old, until his death in 1036. He was the second son of Emperor Ichijô. His mother and wife were both daughters of Fujiwara no Michinaga.

Michinaga, in his function as sesshô (regent), dominated governance during Ichijô's reign.

Go-Ichijô's mausoleum in Kyoto is also the site of the grave of Shôshi-naishinnô, one of Go-Ichijô's daughters, who was an empress consort (chûgû) to Emperor Go-Reizei (r. 1045-1068).
