Japan's Very First Emperor

Jimmu lived around 660 BC.  This was before Japanese civilization could write so his origins and reign are half buried in legends.  Like King David of Israel, he is alleged to have composed poems or songs (psalms).

For more information on Psalms of the Emperor here is an installment from Jimmu Becomes Japan’s First Emperor by Sir Edward Reed:
