The Kodai-in mentioned in this article is obviously not the same one that the link points to - do you have any information on this Kodai-in so that I can create a disambiguation? --Kitsuno 21:23, 12 March 2007 (PDT)

Since 0ne (Nene) is so much more important than this Kodai-in is, wouldn't a disambiguation page be a nuisance? I changed the link. Anyway, this Kodai-in lived 1773-1844 and was the wife of Shogun Ienari.--Bethetsu 18:21, 17 March 2007 (PDT)

I'm keeping "future-oriented" - if she is added at some point, we'd need to disambiguate. I think it is pretty handy for the user, and is relatively simple for me to do - if you do a search for Oda clan (or click the link) you'll see what I mean. Basically, the disambigs facilitate searches. But for the moment, I won't worry about it. I'm probably deluding myself to believe that we'll add every notable person in Japanese history! :D --Kitsuno 18:55, 17 March 2007 (PDT)

Life after leaving Tokyo

I'm pretty sure she moved to Sumpu after spending a few years at the Hitotsubashi residence in Tokyo. This is where she was able to supervise Iesato's education. We may also want to add that se died of Parkinson's disease. I'm fairly sure the Winter '08 MN mentions this. If we want to add this info, I'll dig up the precise references.--Obenjo Kusanosuke 23:25, 14 December 2008 (PST)

I would find such information interesting. I know Yoshinobu lived in Sumpu, but I don't know about Atsu-hime. You had better check, though. I know Iesato was living in Tokyo in 1876 (Clara Whitney's Diary), and the J-Wiki says she lived in Tokyo. If you have any good information with references, like she had Parkinson's, add it.--Bethetsu 21:11, 15 December 2008 (PST)

I'll double check my sources, including the recent MN and dive back into this sometime mid-next week when I start my much needed Christmas/New Year's vacation. I'm tied up with customer visits until then, so stay tuned!--Obenjo Kusanosuke 07:07, 18 December 2008 (PST)

I added info about residency using the Atsuhime timeline provided in the Edo-Tokyo Museum's "Atsuhime" exhibit as well as the info about dying of Parkinson's disease. That came out of Anna Beeren's article in NM. I also posted a colorized portrait that I made. :-) --Obenjo Kusanosuke 00:04, 25 December 2008 (PST)
