Katsuyori Takeda
Birth: 1546
Death: Apr. 3, 1582

Leading warlord during Japan's feudal period. He was the son of Shingen Takeda and succeeded his father as lord of the Kai, Shinano, Suruga dn Kozuke provinces. Unlike his father, he was unable to defeat the large armies of Nobunaga Oda and Ieyasu Tokugawa, who defeated him in the Battle of Nagashino in 1581. Thereafter, Takeda was abandoned by his allies, unable to resist attack with his own army and forced to flee. Trapped, he was forced to commit ritual suicide. His death marked the end of the reign of the Takeda family. Some of his divided ashes are interred at Koyasan. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)

The destination didn't grant you the same greatness that to your father and you were also betrayed, but you were a valiant warrior until the end, a true samurai. Rest in peace, Katsuyori.
