History of Japan



Tenbun (天文 ?), also known as Tembun or Temmon, was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, ?, lit. "year name") after Kyōroku and before Kōji. This period spanned the years from July 1532 through October 1555.[1] The reigning emperor was Go-Nara-tennō (後奈良天皇 ?).[2]


Change of era

  • 1532 Tenbun gannen (天文元年 ?): At the request of Ashikaga Yoshiharu, the 12th Shōgun of the Muromachi Bakufu, the era name was changed because of various battles . The previous era ended and a new one commenced in Kyōroku 5, on the 29th day of the 7th month.
