What do you think of Yamauchi Kazutoyo


Yamauchi Kazutoyo (1546-1605) is one of my favorite samurai.
Kazutoyo was from Owari province and was the son of Yamauchi Moritoyo. He served Oda Nobunaga from about 1565 until the latter's death in 1582, leading troops at Anegawa and Nagashino. He transferred his loyalties to Toyotomi Hideyoshi and was awarded Nagahama in mi province. Following the Odawara Campaign and the Tokugawa transfer to the Kanto in 1590, Kazutoyo received a 50,000-koku fief of Kakegawa in Ttmi province. He sided with Tokugawa Ieyasu in the Sekigahara Campaign (1600) and assisted in the capture of Gifu castle. He led 2,000 men in the rear guard at the Battle of Sekigahara and was afterwards given Kochi in Tosa province. A group of unruly former Chosokabe retainers resisted the Yamauchi transfer and Kazutoyo was forced to call on the assistance of Ii Naomasa to bring order to his new domain. Naomasa sent a force under Suzuki Hye for this purpose and by the latter half of 1601 the Yamauchi's fief was pacified. Kazutoyo's income as lord of Tosa was around 200,000-koku. He built Kōchi Castle. Chiyo (1557-1617) was his wife, and was known in history for her dedication and devotion to her husband (like Matsu was to Toshiie in Toshiie to Matsu). She is the daughter of a samurai who served the feudal lord Asai. she supported her husband during hard times, saving to buy a horse for him. Yamauchi Kazutoyo never took a mistress, though it was a known tradition for samurai, and he never left Chiyo although she was only able to have one child (a girl, Yone). There a shrine dedicated to Chiyo and Kazutoyo for strong marriage. After his death his clan serve Tokugawa shogunate till the Meiji Restoration they were on the emperor side. And founder of Nintendo last name is Yamauchi which was founded in 1889. So now what do you think of Kazutoyo Yamauchi?
