Unused postcard with a violet commemorative cancellation at front side.
Empress Kojun (香淳皇后 (born Princess Nagako (良子女王 Nagako); 1903 – 2000) was empress consort of Emperor Hirohito of Japan. She was the mother of the present Emperor (Akihito).
Her posthumous name is Kōjun, which means "fragrant purity". Empress Kōjun was empress consort (kōgō) from 25 December 1926 to 7 January 1989, making her the longest lived empress consort in Japanese history.
Her husband, Emperor Hirohito, was the 124th Emperor of Japan according to the traditional order, reigning from 1926, until his death in 1989. Although better known outside of Japan by his personal name Hirohito, in Japan he is now referred to exclusively by his posthumous name Emperor Shōwa (昭和天皇).
