The Hideyoshi Toyotomi wiki last edited by SaturdayNightSpecials on 12/22/13 01:56AM View full history

Overview

Hideyoshi Toyotomi, originally Hideyoshi Hashiba, was an officer under the warlord Nobunaga Oda during the Warring States Era.  Though he was given the comical nickname 'Monkey' for his hunched stance, he grew to become one of Nobunaga's most powerful officers.  Following Nobunaga's assassination by the traitorous forces of Mitsuhide Akechi, Hideyoshi led his forces in pursuit, clashed with Akechi at Yamazaki and emerged victorious.
 
After avenging Nobunaga's death, Hideyoshi consolidated power and vied with Ieyasu Tokugawa for the right to carry on Nobunaga's legacy.  He eventually defeated Ieyasu and unified all of Japan under his rule.  His reign lasted until his death.
