|Emperor of Japan|
|Buried||Saki no Tatanami no misasagi (Nara)|
Emperor Seimu (成務天皇 Seimu-tennō) was the 13th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Seimu to be a legendary person, and the name Seimu-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.
