Ichijo Sanemichi (一条実通)

Sanemichi ICHIJO (September 1, 1788 to June 22, 1805) was a Kugyo (high court noble) in the late Edo period. He was the legitimate son of Tadayoshi ICHIJO, who was Sadaijin (minister of the left) (later on a chief adviser to the Emperor). His younger brothers were Tadaka ICHIJO and Takemichi KOGA. He titled himself Seigenin.

He reached the manhood and was promoted to Jugoinoge (Junior Fifth Rank, Lower Grade) Sakone gon no shosho (Provisional Minor Captain of the Left Division of Inner Palace Guards) in 1801, to Jushiinoge (Junior Fourth Rank, Lower Grade) Sakone gon no chujo (Provisional Middle Captain of the Left Division of Inner Palace Guards) in the same year, and further to Shoshiinoge (Senior Fourth Rank, Lower Grade) in the next year.

On April 10, 1803, he was promoted to Jusanmi (Junior Third Rank) and became a Kugyo (high court noble). In 1804, he was appointed as Gon Chunagon (a provisional vice-councilor of state) and the left Imperial Guide Supervisor. However in the next year, he died of sickness at the young age of 18. Therefore, his younger brother Tadaka, as Sanemichi's adopted son, inherited the Ichijo family.
