The Niki of Iga province were founded in Mikawa province by Ashikaga Sanekuni, the great-grandson of the first of the Ashikaga line, Yoshiyasu (d.1157). They supported Ashikaga Takauji in his bid for hegemony and were granted a domain in Kwatchi. They later assumed control of Iga, which they held tenuously into the early 16th Century.
