<p>Abstract:</p><p>Prophecies profoundly influenced historical narratives in fifteenth-century Japan. The narrative of <i>Åninki</i> (The chronicle of Ånin) was constructed so that events would better resonate with a prophecy known as <i>Yamataishi</i>, and the chronicle shaped later historical understandings of the epochal Ånin War. Analysis of this prophecy, coupled with an exploration of the evolution of the chronicle, allows for a new understanding of the war and the role of prophecies in shaping historical narratives of medieval Japan.</p>
