Ashida Nobumori

Nobumori served Takeda Shingen and later Takeda Katsuyori. He held Mitake castle in Kai province until the Battle of Mikatagahara (1572), at which point he was assigned to Futamata in Tôtômi Province. Futamata was quickly surrounded by the Tokugawa after the Takeda defeat at Nagashino in 1575 and Nobumori himself died of illness during the siege. His sons Nobushige and Nobunori both died battle in 1583, after the fall of the Takeda.
