Yoshisuke was a son of Akamatsu Harumasa. He saw much of the former Akamatsu domain slip out of his hands between 1550 and 1570, though he did capture Akashi castle in 1554 from Hosokawa Harumoto. He was defeated in 1569 by Kuroda Kanbei and within a few years had been so weakened that he lived in Himeji at the sufferance of his nominal vassals, the Odera (Kuroda's lord).
