The Ōzato Dynasty (Chinese: 大里朝)(Japanese: 大里王統) was the ruling family of the principality of Nanzan. Ōzato Ofusato established it in 1314 in Itoman. He died during a visit to Korea around 1398. Upon his death, his brother Yafuso seized power, but nothing besides is known about him. After Ofusato's death, his uncle Oueishi took reign. Oueshi's second son, Ououso, became chief after his father's death, and later was killed in a coup d'état by his older brother, Tafuchi, who was then killed by Ououso's son, Taromai. Taromai, the last chief of Nanzan, died in 1429 and a succession dispute ensued, during which the army of Chūzan captured Nanzan Castle, ending the principality and forming Ryukyu Kingdom.

Okinawa: The History of an Island People, p. 52 , p. 52, at Google Books; although the paramount leaders of Okinawa beginning with Shunten (c. 1166 – c. 1237) are commonly identified as "kings," Kerr observes that "it is misleading to attribute full-fledged 'kingship' to an Okinawan chief in these early centuries... distinctly individual leadership exercised through force of personality or preeminent skill in arms or political shrewdness was only slowly replaced by formal institutions of government — laws and ceremonies — supported and strengthened by a developing respect for the royal office."
