Emperor Ingyô is an early emperor described in the Kojiki; he is considered the 19th Emperor of Japan by the "traditional" counting. Though generally considered a historical emperor, it is likely that most records about him are heavily fictionalized.
According to the Kojiki, it was during the reign of Emperor Ingyô that the clan names were selected, and titles corrected.
