Yamana Toyokuni

From SamuraiWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Toyokuni was the son of Yamana Toyosada (1512-1560) and in his career clashed with the Hatano and Akamatsu clans. He made a pact with the Môri, then yielded to the advancing Oda armies of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Toyokuni fled Tottori castle rather then face Hideyoshi and left it to be defended by Kikkawa Tsuneie in one of the Sengoku Period's most vicious sieges.
