|Emperor of Japan|
Unebi-yama no hitsujisaru Mihodo no i no e no no misasagi (Nara)
Emperor Annei (安寧天皇, Annei-tennō) was the 3rd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Annei to be a legendary person, and the name Annei-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No firm dates can be assigned to this emperor's life or reign. The conventionally accepted names and sequence of the early emperors were not to be confirmed as "traditional" until the reign of Emperor Kammu, who was the 50th monarch of the Yamato dynasty.

Events of Annei's life[change | change source]
The absence of information about Annei does not imply that no such person ever existed. Very little information is available for study prior to the reign of the 29th monarch, Emperor Kimmei (509?-571).
