HTML <figcaption> Tag

The <figcaption> tag is used to add a caption or explanations to the contents of the <figure> tag. The <figcaption> is included in the <figure> and is placed as the first or last child element. If the <figcaption> is the first embedded element, then the content will be displayed at the top of the image.

You can use only one <figcaption> in the <figure> element, but, however, it can contain other tags (<img> tag or <code>).

Syntax

The element content is written between the opening <figcaption> and the closing (</figcaption>) tags.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
