Emperor Taishō (Taishō-tennō, 31 August 1879 – 25 December 1926) was the 123rd Emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession, and the second ruler of the Empire of Japan from 30 July 1912 until his death in 1926.

The Emperor's personal name was Yoshihito. According to Japanese custom, during the reign the Emperor is called "the Emperor". After death, he is known by a posthumous name, which is the name of the era coinciding with his reign. Having ruled during the Taishō period, he is known as the "Emperor Taishō".

Rare photo of Emperor Taisho as crown prince with commoners found in west Japan city - The Mainichi
A group photo showing Emperor Taisho (1879-1926) with some 260 people in this west Japan city in 1907, when he was crown prince, has been found, highlighting his interaction with commoners at a time when emperors were divinized and such contact with large groups was rare.

The photo, measuring 19.7 centimeters by 15.4 cm, was found in Matsue in February this year when a resident was sorting out things in their old family's storehouse. The Matsue Municipal Government's historical sources survey division identified the man in the center of the front row, clad in an Imperial Japanese Navy ceremonial outfit, as Emperor Taisho based on his appearance, decoration and sleeve patch -- though there are no notes about the date or the figure in the picture.


Takeshi Hara, professor of history of Japanese political thought at the Open University of Japan, who authored the book "Emperor Taisho," commented, "Emperor Taisho liked cameras, and there's a photo of him with local people in the Korean Empire during his visit in 1907, but a photo taken with this many people is rare. I think it was taken between official activities. He is said to have often talked to commoners and this casual personality of his is expressed here."

Has anybody ever managed to figure out exactly what his health problems were?

I have read that the Emperor contracted cerebral meningitis in his babyhood. The effects of that, both physical and mental, are believed to have troubled him for the rest of his life. There was also speculation that Yoshihito may have also suffered from lead poisoning, as his wet-nurse apparently used heavy lead-based white make-up.

According to Wikipedia, it was "meningitis, diabetes, cerebral thrombosis and mental illness".

That sounds like a ghastly combo.
