Origin[]

Iyo, also known as Toyo, was the heir to Queen Himiko, the fabled ruler of Yamatai, and was said to thirteen-years-old when she took the throne. Like Himiko, Iyo was a shaman. It is not clear as to what her relation was to Himiko, but information obtained from Chinese sources and from archeological and ethnological discoveries has led Japanese scholars to conclude that she was a distant niece.

As queen, Iyo played a part in China's affairs by restoring tributary relations between Wu and Wei. Officials from Wei were part of her entourage of advisors, led by her grand steward, Isako.
