Was Musashi Goro Sadayo a real historical person or is he just a later addition to the Masakado legend? I always come across him when I see Japanese art, his death in Masakado's last battle is a common subject. I know nothing of Heian warriors but I have read the Shomonki and Sadayo is not in it. He must be a relation to Takeshiba, I figured. Even if he is made up there must be stories about him, anyone know where I can find them? I don't read Japanese myself but I can always find a translator.

I am afraid I don't know whether his was historical, but there is an Edo-period woodblock of him in Bando City.

A retainer of Masakado named Rokurô Kintsura 六郎公連 remonstrated with his lord for his ambition of becoming the "New Emperor", and Masakado ordered Musashi 武蔵五郎貞世, the central figure in the picture, to strike him with an iron fan.
