Mimakihime

Mimakihime (御間城姫) was the wife of Emperor Sujin, and together they had Emperor Suinin, Izanomawaka, Kunikatahime, Chijitsukuyamatohime, Yamatohiko123 and Igahime.23

The nihongi states that she was made Empress on the ‘2nd month, 16th day’ of her husbands reign and that she had her children before being made Empress.1

The kojiki gives her father as Ohobiko.234

Later she was given the title of Kodaigo by her son in the “11th month, 2nd day” of his reign.1
