Dates[edit]

"Emperor Seinei (清寧天皇 Seinei Tennō), or rather Shiraka no okimi was the 22nd emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. No firm dates can be assigned to this emperor or to his reign, but he is believed to have ruled the country during the late 5th century AD."
"According to Kojiki and Nihonshoki, he was a son of Emperor Yūryaku. His name in birth was Shiraka. "Shiraka" means "white-haired" in Japanese, and it is said that the color of his hair was white since his birth (possibly albinism). After the death of his father, Seinei won the fight against Prince Hoshikawa, his brother, for the throne and so succeeded his father. He reigned from 480 till 484."

So are there firm dates or not? -- Gordon Ecker (talk) 11:42, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Image of Imperial symbol[edit]

The Imperial mon (emblem) was added in the Notes section in 2010. In 2012, the image was removed from this and 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 article is an important part of a grouping of articles about the emperors of Japan -- see Imperial Household Agency (Kunaichō): 清寧天皇 (22). Does this rationale provide a good enough reason for it to be restored? --Enkyo2 (talk) 20:32, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
