Untitled[edit]

We were taught in school, Emperor Ojin is the oldest real emperor. I am curious to another these which says he was a legendary emperor. Aphaea 19:48, 14 May 2004 (UTC)

I don't see the proof in the article. This needs to be explained. -RomeW

I see a discrepancy in the text - it says that "It is somewhat probable that he (or the chieftain upon whose life the legend about Ōjin is built) flourished in early 5th century CE" with no other dates proposed, while below he's listed as "Emperor of Japan 270-310" in the sequence.

    My mistake, other dates are mentioned, but the quoted sentece still hangs awkward in the text.

Image of Imperial symbol[edit]

The Imperial mon (emblem) was added here. In 2012, the image was removed from other articles about Japanese emperors -- compare here. Zenwort's edit summary is clear and reasonable --img of Imperial seal removed, this was not used before the Muromachi era

The use of this symbol is justified because this emperor and this article is an important part of a grouping of articles about the emperors of Japan -- see Imperial Household Agency (Kunaichō): 応神天皇 (15). Does this rationale provide a good enough reason for it to be restored? --Enkyo2 (talk) 13:58, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
