Abstract
The “Code for Officials of the Rear Palace” (Kōkyū shiki-in ryō) in the Yōrō Law Codes lists twelve bureaucratic offices held by women in the imperial court. The most prominent of these offices, naishi no kami (Director of the Palace Retainer’s Office) was held exclusively by women of the Fujiwara clan during the Heian period, most often by those who would later became consorts and bore the emperor’s children. This thesis explores the role and responsibilities of naishi no kami in late Heian Japan in relation to the Fujiwara clan through the examination of the “Code for Officials of the Rear Palace” itself, as well as courtier diaries and chronicles from the same period.
