Joining the Otomo Edit

Born Hantei Yamato, when his brother Hantei Genji was declared the new Emperor in 46, he renounced the Hantei name and swore fealty to the Otomo family. [1]

Yamato was the first of the Hantei's siblings to renounce his claim to the throne in the Ritual of Abdication. While Yamato did this as a gesture of respect, it became tradition for the Imperial Heir's siblings to take the name of an Imperial family rather than the Hantei name. [2]

Author Edit

Yamato published the Divine Branch, [2] shortly before his death in the year 88. [3] [4]
