Death of Hosokawa Takakuni

Hosokawa Takakuni, one time head of the Hosokawa clan and one of the most powerful military
commanders of the Muromachi period committed seppuku on this day, July 17, 1531.

 

Born in 1484 to Hosokawa Masaharu, a highly trusted vassal of the Ashikaga Shogun, Hosokawa Takakuni
was, along with his cousins, Sumimoto and Sumiyuki, adopted by the childless deputy Shogun, Hosokawa Masamoto. Masamoto was ringleader in a coup to oust the 10th Shogun, Ashikaga Yoshitane, and replace
him with the puppet shogun, Yoshizumi in 1494.





Unimpressed by his adopted father’s politics, Takakuni then became involved in the plot with Ouchi
Yoshioki to oust the 11th Shogun, Yoshizumi, and restore power to the 10th Shogun, Yoshitane.
Meanwhile, adopted brother Sumimoto who had supported Yoshizumi, was disinherited by his
father when Yoshizumi was exiled. In 1507, Sumiyuki, along with Kosai Motonaga, broke into his
fathers’ home, and killed him while Masamoto was taking a bath.


Sumiyuki assumed power, forcing Takakuni to flee Kyoto, however years later, Takakuni returned with
a greater army, and in turn sent Sumiyuki into exile in Awa. Greatly empowered, Takakuni would then
revolt against Shogun Yoshitane, whom he had long supported, and replaced him with Yoshizune’s son,
Yoshiharu.


Takakuni was expelled from the capital by Miyoshi Motonaga and Hosokawa Harumoto (a son of
Sumimoto) in 1527. Four years later, Harumoto attacked and defeated Takakuni’s army at Tennoji
and at Amagasaki, (Hyogo Prefecture) where he fled and hid in a sake warehouse, committing suicide
on his detection.
