Crest of the Imperial Chrysanthemum Throne.


Kagurohime (迦具漏比売) was one of several concubines of Emperor Keikō and together they had a son called Ohoyenomiko.

The kojiki says she was the daughter of Sumeiroohonakatsuhiko who was the great-grandson of Yamato Takeru. This would have to be an error in the records as it would mean the Emperor married his great-great-granddaughter.1
