Matsudaira Chikayoshi (1632-1717)
The second son of Matsudaira Naomasa, lord of Matsue han, Chikayoshi received a 30,000 koku domain from his elder brother Matsudaira Tsunataka in 1666, marking the establishment of Hirose han. In 1682, as a result of the Echigo succession dispute, Chikayoshi had his domain reduced by half. It was restored, however, in 1694.
Chikayoshi died on 1717/9/19, at the age of 86.
