A classic tale recounting the adventures and intrigue of Emperor Go–Daigo (1288 — 1339) and his court, including his rise to power, his exile and his triumphant return to the throne. Incorporated into this story is the verse of the Six Dynasties and T'ang, and the Confucian teachings that underlie the stern warrior code of loyalty and filial piety.
