Glossary

Tenpyō-jingo (天平神護 ?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, ?, lit. "year name") after Tenpyō-hōji and before Jingo-keiun. This period spanned the years from 765 through 767. The reigning empress was Empress Shōtoku-tennō (称徳天皇 ?). This was the same woman who had reigned previously as the former Kōken-tennō (孝謙天皇 ?).[1]
