Jingo

Japanese - An empress of Japan. Wife of Chuai. Wife of Yamatodake, some say. Mother of Ojin. After her husband's death, she developed an ambition to annexe Korea. She built a huge fleet and, taking with her the Tide Jewels which she had borrowed from the Dragon King of the Sea, set sail. When they met the Korean fleet, she threw the Jewel of the Ebb Tide into the sea and the opposing ships became stranded on the sands as the sea receded. When the Koreans disembarked, she used the Jewel of the Flood Tide to cause the sea to return and overwhelm the Koreans, after which she was easily able to conquer the country. She was deified after her death. Sometimes referred to as Jingo.
