Date Masamune is one of the popular regional rulers who was also a warlord during the Azuchi Momoyama era. This period was from the last part of the Sengoku through the early Edo period.
Masamune was heir to a long and rich line of powerful Daimyo in the Tohoku region. And with his skill and influence, he went on and founded the modern day city of Sendai.
He was not only a skilled warrior, but also an remarkable tactician. One feature that made him more popular and iconic was his missing eye. He lost this due to smallpox as a child. Because of this, Masamune became known as Dokuganryu which translates to One-Eyed Dragon.
Though a skilled warlord and ruler, Date Masamune was more than just that. He was also one of the legendary warriors and leaders from Japan’s Sengoku period.
He was a solid fighter on the battlefield since his early 18 years of age. This earned him to become a very successful Daimyo, and also became the Noshiagari in Oshu. Date was definitely one of the most influential leaders of that time.
During his lifetime, Masamune Date, for the most part, served under Toyotomi Hideyoshi. After Hideyoshi’s death, Masamune went on to serve under Tokugawa Ieyasu. He took part in various battles like the Osaka campaign. Date contributed to the victory in the Summer Campaign.
