|Emperor of Japan|
|Buried||Kataoka no Umasaka no misasagi (Nara)|
Emperor Kōrei (孝霊天皇 Kōrei-tennō) was the 7th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kōrei to be a legendary person; and the name Kōrei-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No certain 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.
