Atsuji Sadayuki 阿閉貞征 : I am looking for heraldry for this retainer of Asai Nagamasa who ended up supporting Akechi Mitsuhide for the doom of his family.
He participated to Anegawa leading 1000 cavalry in the third line of Asai's Army and then defended Ôdani Castle and his own Yamamotoyama castle until 1573. He then surrendered to Oda Nobunaga.
Yoriki of Hashiba Hideyoshi in his Nagahama lord period, they quickly came in dispute about Chikubu-shima holy island and its income.
He did not follow Hideyoshi to Harima and became hatamoto for Oda.
He sided with Akechi Mitsuhide and fought at Yamazaki. All his family was then destroyed in Yamamotoyama.
As a loser and with a family totally wiped out, it looks that history has not kept much about his heraldry.
If anybody could identify the Atsuji family symbols from Anegawa or Yamazaki battle pictures/archives, I would be very thankful.
