Shōkyō (正慶), also known as Shōkei, was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, lit. year name) of the Northern Court during the Nanboku-chō period after Gentoku and before Kemmu. This period started in April 1332 and ended in April 1334.[1] The pretender in Kyoto was Emperor Kōgon (光厳天皇, Kōgon-tennō).[2] Kōgon's Southern Court rival in Yoshino during this time was Emperor Go-Daigo (後醍醐天皇, Go-Diago-tennō).
