Emperor Go-Ichijô reigned from 1016, when he was about ten years old, until his death in 1036. He was the second son of Emperor Ichijô. His mother and wife were both daughters of Fujiwara no Michinaga.
Michinaga, in his function as sesshô (regent), dominated governance for the first two years of Go-Ichijô's reign. Fujiwara no Yorimichi then served as sesshô, and then as kanpaku, from 1019 until 1068 (through nearly all of Go-Ichijô's reign, and of the following two emperors).
