Life

On the third month, 27th day, Keichō 16 (1611), he became Emperor upon the abdication of his father, Emperor Go-Yōzei. On the 4th month, 12th day, he performed a ceremony of gratitude for his enthronement.

When it was found out that his favorite court lady while he was a prince was an imperial princess, Tokugawa Hidetada threatened to cancel the engagement to his daughter, Tokugawa Kazuko. However, apologizing for his actions, Tokugawa Kazuko was welcomed into the Imperial court. In 1627, the Purple Clothes Incident occurred: Tokugawa Iemitsu's wet nurse, being without rank or title, visited the Imperial court. The Emperor, who was unable to retain influence in the face of the shogunate, abdicated in favor of his daughter, who became the Meishō Empress.

He passed away in 1680.

In the grounds of the Sōkoku-ji in the Kamigyō Ward of Kyōto, Emperor Go-Mizunoo's teeth and hair are located, serving to enshrine him.

Name

He is named after the Seiwa Emperor, who had the alternate name Mizunoo. (The prefix Go- indicates "later").
