Tokugawa Gorōta (徳川 五郎太?, February 25, 1711 – December 5, 1713) was a Japanese daimyo of the Edo period, who ruled the Owari Domain.

Biography[edit]

Tokugawa Gorōta was the eldest son of the 4th daimyō of Owari Domain, Tokugawa Yoshimichi by his official wife, Zuishō-in, the daughter of the court noble Kujō Tsukezane. Gorōta was only two years old when his father died, and he followed only two months later at the age of three. The direct line of succession for Owari Domain passed to his uncle, Tokugawa Tsugutomo.

He was posthumously elevated to 3rd Court Rank. His grave is at the Owari Tokugawa clan temple of Kenchū-ji in Nagoya.
