Emperor Go-Kameyama was the last emperor of the Southern Court. He abdicated in 1392 explicitly choosing to not be succeeded by a direct heir, in order to abdicate power to the Northern Court and end the lengthy Nanbokuchô period of conflict between competing imperial lineages.
He took the throne in 1383.
