  • Japanese: 一条 忠香 (Ichijô Tadaka)

Ichijô Tadaka was a court noble of the Bakumatsu period. He was named Naidaijin in 1858, following Sanjô Sanetsumu's retirement,[1] and was reassigned to the position of Sadaijin the following year.[2]

One of his daughters, Ichijô Haruko, married the Meiji Emperor in 1867 and became known as Empress Shôken.[3] His adopted daughter Ichijô Mikako married Tokugawa Yoshinobu, head of the Hitotsubashi family, in 1855, before circumstances led to him becoming shogun in 1867.[4]
