Date of birth[edit]

It differs from Find-A-Grave. Lincher 15:26, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

1526 is the traditional date. Modern reference books give "1528?" But the poem (of doubtful authenticity) which is the basis for the birth year does not indicate the date, so I put???


This article says that he survived for 13 days after the Incident at Honnoji, while the article on Oda Nobunaga says that he survived 11 days. Which one is it, or is it unknown? Either way, it appeared strange to me.

Good Article[edit]

Anyone who is interested in Mitsuhide should read the Incident at Honnoji article. Stone-turner it was 13 days i think as he was became know as the "the 13 day shogun —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:22, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Akechi's mother[edit]

The wording of the sentence on this makes it sound like Oda Nobunaga murdered the mother. Perhaps it could be rephrased, or the situation explained. Jeroen Lamers in 'Japonius Tyrannus' gives another explanation for Akechi's assassination of Oda. In other sources i read it says Mitsuhide offered his aunt as a hostage not his mother so maybe someone should look into that- Zanarkand777 (September 28th 2007) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:31, 28 September 2007 (UTC)


I removed the following: It should be noted that Nobunaga claimed to be a descendant of the Taira clan.Both the Taira and Minamoto were rival clans in the 12th century,therefor showing a hidden bond. Most prominent Sengoku samurai clans can trace their lineage back to Minamoto, Taira or Fujiwara, even though some may be sprurious. The ancient rivalry between Minamoto and Taira plays no part in Sengoku politics, and is largely irrelevant. Uly 12:00, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
