Numata Akiyasu

From SamuraiWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Akiyasu was the son of Numata Kôzuke no suke Yasuteru and held Numata castle in Kôzuke for the Uesugi. He favored his youngest son Kageyoshi to succeed him, to the point, it would seem, of having his eldest son Tomoyasu murdered in 1569. This created such strife within the Numata family that Akiyasu was forced to flee to Aizu, where he died.
