Hirohito, posthumously referred to as Emperor Shōwa (April 29, 1901 – January 7, 1989) in Japan, was the 124th Emperor of Japan according to the traditional order, reigning from December 25, 1926, until his death in 1989.

However, he was retained by the US occupying authorities as the unifying figure for Japan.
