Takeda Shingen 1521-1573

Born in 1521 as the eldest son of Takeda Nobutota who was the leader of the Takeda Clan. In 1541, he inherited his father's fued and was expelled from Yamanashi Prefecture. Yamanashi Prefecture (山梨県, Yamanashi-ken) is located in the Chūbu region of the island of Honshū, Japan. The capital is the city of Kōfu. He tried to first expand his territory toward north and entered a conflict with another strong warlord, Uesugi Kensin (Click for his sword here). As both of them are good tacticians, the battle of Kawanakajima ended in a draw. When Takeda Shingen was 49 years old, he was the only daimyo with the necessary power and tactics skill to stop Oda Nobunaga's rush to rule Japan. After the death of Imagawa Yoshimoto, he raised a big army to occupy Kyoto. At just 52, he died due to illness during a battle against Tokogawa Leyasu in 1573.
