Toshitsune was the 4th son of [[Maeda Toshiie]]. He was adopted as heir by his elder brother [[Maeda Toshinaga|Toshinaga]] and became [[daimyo|daimyô]] of the [[Maeda clan]] when Toshinaga retired in [[1605]]<!--see Toshinaga's bio-->. He led men against the defenders of [[Osaka Castle]] and fought at the [[Battle of Tennoji|Battle of Tennôji]] ([[1615]]). He retired in [[1639]] and was succeeded by his son Mitsumasa while placing a younger son, Toshiharu, in charge of the recently created [[Daishoji han|Daishôji han]] and his 3rd son [[Maeda Toshitsugu|Toshitsugu]] in Toyama. By this point the Maeda clan had become one of the most powerful daimyô houses in Japan.

In [[1616]], Toshitsune met with a formal diplomatic mission from the Siamese kingdom of [[Ayutthaya]], in his home domain of [[Kaga han|Kaga]]; due to the sudden death of [[Tokugawa Ieyasu]] at that time, however, the mission did not continue on to [[Edo]].<ref>Cesare Polenghi, ''Samurai of Ayutthaya: Yamada Nagamasa, Japanese warrior and merchant in early seventeenth-century Siam''.
