From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fujiwara no Nakamaro (藤原仲麻呂 ?) 706 - October 21, 764), later also given the name of Emi no Oshikatsu (恵美押勝 ?) by Emperor Kōnin, was an aristocrat (kuge) and poet of Heian period in Japan. His father was Fujiwara no Muchimaro, founder of Nanke lineage of Fujiwara clan.

In 764 he plotted with the then Emperor Junnin against retired Empress Kōken and the monk Dōkyō amid the contention between two factions in the government. His rebellion failed, and he was executed in Lake Biwa with his wife and children.
