  • Titles: Ômi-no-kami

Ogiwara Shigehide was named Ômi-no-kami in 1695, and kanjô bugyô the following year. He held a 3700 koku fief. Ogiwara was dismissed from his post in 1712, in part at the urging of shogunal advisor Arai Hakuseki, who wrote that "ever since Shigehide gained control of shogunal finances, the fine laws of former shoguns have been trampled upon, arousing the anger and grievance of the retainers and the populace."[1]
