Samurai ; Hosokawa Sumimoto

2015.06.24 | カテゴリー : Samurai | 投稿者名 :

Hosokawa Sumimoto died on this day, June 24, 1520.


Hosokawa Sumimoto was a Muromachi period samurai general and supporter of the 11th Shogun,
Ashikaga Yoshizumi.
Born in Awa Province in 1489, he was the 6th son of Hosokawa Yoshiharu,
but later adopted as heir to the deputy-shogun, Hosokawa Masamoto. Masamoto had already
adopted another clan member, Hosokawa Sumiyuki as heir, but altered his decision to make
Sumimoto heir, causing animosity between the two “brothers”.


In 1507, Sumiyuki and his retainer Kozai Motonaga broke into Masamoto’s home, and killed him
while he was taking a bath. The pair then attacked the 19-year-old Sumimoto, who fled to Koga
in Omi Province (Shiga Prefecture). In revenge, Miyoshi Yukinaga, a powerful Hosokawa clan retainer
raised an army and attacked and killed Sumiyuki. This allowed Sumimoto to claim his rightful position.


Sumimoto’s step-father, the late Masamoto, had deposed the 10th Shogun, Ashikaga Yoshitane in
1493, and replaced him with the puppet, Ashikaga Yoshizumi. Yoshitane had sought refuge with
one Ouchi Yoshioki, who raised an army and marched on Kyoto, removing Yoshizumi and restoring
Yoshitane in 1508.
Sumimoto was exiled to Omi, and while he plotted to battle with Ouchi Yoshioki,
was defeated at the 1511 Battle of Funaokayama.


Seven years later, deeming Yoshitane to be safe and in control, Ouchi Yoshioki left Kyoto. Sumimoto
saw this as an opportunity, and again raised an army. Miyoshi Yukinaga led the initial attacks, but was
captured and forced to commit seppuku, and Sumomoto was unable to reach Kyoto due to illness.
Instead he fled to his domain in Awa and died shortly after on June 24, 1520, aged 31.
