The Ashikaga clan (足利氏 Ashikaga-shi?) was a prominent Japanese samurai clan which established the Muromachi shogunate and ruled Japan from roughly 1336 to 1573. During the Muromachi period it had a Kansai and a Kantō branch (the Kantō Ashikaga-ke (関東足利家?), from which stemmed the various rulers called kubō (Kantō Kubō and Koga Kubō) of the area).
