150. TAKEDA SHINGEN 1521 – 1573 武田信玄

Shingen was one of the key Sengoku Daimyô and there is no need to add anything here as his story is so readily known.

The eldest son of Takeda Nobutora 武田信虎 (のぶとら) 1494 – 1574.

Children -
Sons
1st Takeda Yoshinobu 武田義信 よしのぶ 1538 - 1567
2nd Takeda (Uno) Nobuchika 海野信親 のぶちか 1541 – 1582
3rd Takeda Nobuyuki 武田信之 のぶゆき 1543 - 1553
4th Takeda Katsuyori / Suwa Katsuyori 武田勝頼 / 諏訪勝頼 かつより / すわ かつより 1546 - 1582
5th Takeda (Nishina) Morinobu 仁科盛信 にしな もりのぶ 1557 - 1582
6th Takeda (Katsuruyama) Nobusada 葛山信貞 かつらやま のぶさだ - 1582
7th Takeda Nobukiyo 武田信清 たけだ のぶきよ 1560 - 1642
Daughters
Oubaiin / Koubaiin 黄梅院 おうばいいん / こうばいいん 1543 - 1569
Kenshou-in 見性院 けんしょういん 1545 – 1622
Shinryûin 眞龍院 しんりゅういん 1550 - 1647
Matsuhime 松姫 まつひめ 1561 - 1616
Kikuhime 菊姫 きくひめ 1563 -1604

Following the death of Katsuyori in 1582 the line had come to an end with two main exceptions:

Katsuyori's first son Takeda Nobukatsu 武田信勝 1567 - 1582 had adopted Anayama Katsuchiyo (Takeda Nobuharu) 穴山勝千代 / 武田信治 あなやま かつちよ / たけだ のぶはる 1572 – 1587 (Son of Anayama Nobukimi / Baisetsu 穴山 信君 / 梅雪 あなやま のぶきみ / ばいせつ)
Subsequently Tokugawa Ieyasu had his 5th son Nobuyoshi 武田信吉 1583 - 1603 adopted by Nobuharu forming the Takeda (Tokugawa) line. Nobuyoshi would hold -
Sakura, Shimôsa 40 000 koku 1593 - 1602
Mito, Hitachi 150 000 koku 1602 - 1603
With his death this Takeda line ended.

Takeda Nobuhiro 武田信広 1431 - 1494, of the Wakasa Takeda, was adopted by Kakizaki Sueshige. He went to Ezo in 1454 to help suppress an Ainu revolt and stayed. His descendants would change their name to Matsumae after the area of Ezo where they lived. In 1583 Matsumae Yoshihiro 松前慶広 1548 - 1616 became the Daimyô of Matsumae han, 10 000 koku, the only han ever established in Ezo. The family held the han till 1871.
Matsumae Takahiro 松前崇広 1829 - 1866 was one of very few Tozama Daimyô to hold the Rôjû position.

151. TAKIGAWA KATSUTOSHI 1543 – 1610 滝川雄利 (かつとし)

Katsutoshi (also known as Kitabatake Katsutoshi, Hashiba Katsutoshi and Takigawa Kazumori) (Shimôsa no Kami下総守) was born into the Kitabatake family, and was a close relation to Kitabatake Harutomo. He was then adopted by Takigawa Kazumasu (Ichimasa) 滝川一益 (かずます) 1525 - 1586 (Iyo no Kami 伊予守) when the Oda had absorbed the Kitabatake lands in Ise.
He was present at the invasion of Iga (1581) and in 1582 was fighting the Hôjô with Kazumasa but they were defeated. After Nobunaga’s death they opposed Toyotomi Hideyoshi but were forced to submit and in 1584 took part in the Komaki campaign. His father then retired and Katsutoshi was given a fief at Matsushima (Ise) and the use of the Hashiba surname. He would serve in the Kyushu and Odawara campaigns for Hideyoshi and supported the Western side for the Sekigahara campaign after Hideyoshi’s death. He lost his lands to the Tokugawa but was given a small fief in Hitachi in 1601 - Katano, Hitachi 20 000 koku 1601 - 1610

He was followed by his son Takigawa Masatoshi 滝川正利 (まさとし) 1590 - 1625 (Iki no Kami 壱岐守) who held the fief 1610 - 1625. With his death the family ceased to be Daimyô.

152. TERAZAWA HIROTAKA 1563 – 1633 寺沢広高 (ひろたか)
(Illustrated by Evalerio)

Hirotaka (also known as Terazawa Masanari and Terazawa Masatada) (Shima no Kami 志摩守) was the son of Terazawa Hiromasa 寺沢広正 1525 - 1596, who had served the Oda and Toyotomi.
Hirotaka worked for Hideyoshi primarily in a logistic and admin role. He was involved in the Kyushu campaign and Imjin war. In 1593 he was given a 83 000 koku fief in Hizen at Karatsu and became governor of Nagasaki. For a brief period he was a Christian. After Hideyoshi’s death he sided with the Tokugawa and led 2400 men at Sekigahara. His fief was increased to 123 000 koku, but in 1603 he upset Ieyasu and was relieved of his governorship of Nagasaki. His son Katataka’s cruel actions were a prime reason for the Shimabara rebellion and they were removed as Daimyô. The Terazawa were unusual in having an animal as a mon, in their case a crab.

Karatsu, Hizen 83 - 123 000 koku 1593 - 1633

Son -
Terazawa Katataka 寺沢堅高 (かたたか) (Hyûgo no Kami 日向守) 1609 - 1647. Committed suicide and died heirless.

Karatsu, Hizen 123 000 koku 1633 - 1647

After his death Ieyasu was deified as Tôshô daigongen and first buried at Kuno. Then in 1617 he was moved to the Nikko shrine. These banners appear to be associated with the deified Ieyasu.

As one of Hideyoshi’s few relatives he received a 400 000 koku fief in Ômi after Oda Nobunaga died in 1582. He served in the Komaki, Shikoku and Odawara campaigns and became Hideyoshi’s heir. When in 1593 Hideyoshi had a new living son Hidetsugu fell out of favour and in 1595 he was ordered to commit suicide.

166. TSUGARU NOBUHIRA 1586 – 1631 津軽信枚
(Illustrated by Evalerio)

Nobuhira was the 3rd son of Tsugaru Tamenobu and was married into the Ikeda family and the Tokugawa family. During the Sekigahara campaign he sided with Tokugawa Ieyasu along with his father and brother Nobukata, his other brother Nobutake sided with Ishida Mitsunari. The family had 1000 men at Sekigahara. A fair number of families (not direct vassals of either side) employed this stratagem to ensure the family’s survival. The Tsugaru were destined in the Edo period to suffer a number of succession arguments that required intervention by the Shôgunate. Nobuhira was Daimyô of the Hirosaki-han (Mutsu 47 000 koku) from 1607 – 1631. He was followed by his eldest son Nobuyoshi.

167. UESUGI KAGEKATSU 1556 – 1623 上杉景勝
(Illustrated by Evalerio)

Kagekatsu was the 2nd son of Nagao Masakage and the adopted son of Uesugi Kenshin, his uncle. After Kenshin’s death he battled with Kenshin’s other adopted son Uesugi Kagetora and won in 1578, Kagetora was forced to commit suicide. Kagekatsu served Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the Odawara campaign and the Imjin war. By 1600 he held a domain worth 1 200 000 koku and during the Sekigahara campaign he allied himself with Ishida Mitsunari. The plan was for Kagekatsu and other northern Daimyô to keep the Tokugawa occupied whilst the Western army stole a march towards the Kanto. As it turned out Ieyasu’s allies in that area (the Date, Mogami and others) contained the threat and Ieyasu was free to follow his own plans. Very quickly after Sekigahara he pledged allegiance to the Tokugawa and was given Yonezawa (Dewa 300 000 koku). He served the Tokugawa at Ôsaka. He was followed by his son Sadakatsu.

That is all the sets now posted.

I will return at intervals and update information as it becomes available.

My thanks to Zenmaster who originally posted the images of the scrolls which gave me the idea of producing this English language version.

My thanks to Kitsuno, Evalerio, Lordameth, Nagaeyari, Akaguma, Bethetsu and Tatsunoshi for their assistance along the way.

I hope this thread has been both interesting and informative.
