Emperor Shirakawa on plexiglass

Emperor Shirakawa was the 72nd Emperor of Japan, reigning from 1073 to 1087. He is known for establishing the system of 'Insei' (monastery government), where he continued to exercise significant political power from a Buddhist monastery after his abdication as a retired emperor. This enabled him to influence his successors and the country's politics, a practice continued by later emperors. His reign and the Insei period that followed marked a major shift in power from the Japanese aristocracy to the emerging samurai class.
