Japan: Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko

Akihito, the reigning Emperor of Japan, is the 125th emperor of his line. He ascended the throne in 1989 and is often referred to as "His Imperial Majesty." Akihito wed Empress Michiko in 1959, making her the first commoner to ever marry into the Japanese Imperial Family. They have three children: Crown Prince Naruhito, Prince Akishino and Princess Nori. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Kiyoshi Ota/Getty Images)
