Rinshi (fl. 900s)
Rinshi (fl. 900s)
Japanese royal. Flourished in the 900s; married Fujiwara no Michinaga (966–1028, head of the famous Fujiwara family during their period of greatest power and influence), in 987; children: daughters Shoshi (fl. 990–1010), Kenshi, Ishi, and Kishi, and son Yorimichi (who became emperor).
In 987, Fujiwara no Michinaga took Rinshi, the daughter of a high-ranking court official, as his principal wife, and their union proved particularly fruitful. In addition to sons, Rinshi had several daughters, whom Michinaga was able to make good use of in improving his own position. As was the custom of the times, Michinaga eventually took a secondary wife or consort, a woman by the name of Meishi . Meishi had three children, daughter Kanshi and sons Yorimune and Yoshinobu.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
