Kōei (康永) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, lit. year name) of the Northern Court during the Nanboku-chō period after Ryakuō and before Jōwa. This period started in April 1342 and ended in October 1345.[1] The pretender in Kyoto was Emperor Kōmyō (光明天皇, Kōmyō-tennō).[2] Kōmyō's Southern Court rival in Yoshino during this time-frame was Emperor Go-Murakami (後村上天皇, Go-Murakami-tennō).[3]
