  Heian period - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Heian period was preceded by the Nara period and began in 794 after the movement of the capital of Japan to Heian-kyō (平安京, present-day Kyoto) by the 50th emperor, Emperor Kammu (桓武天皇 Kammu Tennō).
As the Soga had taken control of the throne in the sixth century, the Fujiwara by the ninth century had intermarried with the imperial family, and one of their members was the first head of the Emperor's Private Office.
The Fujiwara controlled the throne until the reign of Emperor Go-Sanjō (1068-73), the first emperor not born of a Fujiwara mother since the ninth century.

From time to time vigorous emperors or newly risen families briefly challenged their authority, but, except for a few breaks, particularly between 891 and 1015, Yoshifusa's descendants occupied the post of regent for minors or that of kampaku for adult emperors until 1867.
Even when the emperors were clearly recognized to be their puppets and were entirely overshadowed in prestige and magnificence by the Fujiwara regents and kampaku, the family remained content with their theoretically secondary position.
Emperor Ichijo already had an empress, Fujiwara no Teishi, but so great was Michinaga’s power that he was able to induce the emperor to depart from custom and name a second empress.

While there certainly have been forcible depositions, assassinations, and revolts at times, the large number is simply a reflection of a tendency within the culture to retire from the burdens of official life after a time.
In the case of the Tennos ("Emperors"), they often settled in monasteries, where they continued to exert influence over their successors from the privileged position of elder statesmen.
