Hirohito

Emperor of Japan during World War II, Hirohito was the nation’s monarch from 1926 until his death in 1989. Hirohito announced the surrender of Japan to his people in August 1945, and after the war a constitution patterned after that of the United States created a constitutional monarchy form of government in the island nation. The depth of Hirohito’s involvement in leading Japan to war remains the subject of debate.
