Akechi Mitsuhide (明智 光秀?) nicknamed Jūbei or called Koretō Hyūga no Kami (惟任日向守?) from his clan name and title.
(March 10, 1528 – July 2, 1582 Japanese calendar 6th month 13th day)
Mitsuhide was a samurai who lived during the Sengoku period of Feudal Japan. He was a general under daimyo Oda Nobunaga, although he later suddenly betrayed Nobunaga and was complicit in the latters' death. In 1579 he captured Yakami Castle from Hatano Hideharu by promising Hideharu peace terms. This accomplished Mitsuhide's goal, although Nobunaga betrayed the peace agreement and had Hideharu executed. According to several stories, this displeased the Hatano family, and a short while later several of Hideharu's retainers murdered Akechi Mitsuhide's mother (or aunt). The situation was fueled through several public insults Nobunaga had directed at Mitsuhide that even drew the attention of some Western observers. However, the reason Mitsuhide killed Nobunaga at the Incident at Honnōji on June 21, 1582 (Japanese: 6th month 2nd day) is not specified.
He has been credited with killing Oda Nobunaga; while Mitsuhide did not execute Nobunaga personally, he did force him to commit seppuku for his betrayal and subsequent murder of Mitsuhide's mother. When they found out about the assassination, both Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu rushed to be the first to avenge Nobunaga and take his place. Hideyoshi got to Mitsuhide first, and Mitsuhide's allies such as Hosokawa Fujitaka, who was related to Mitsuhide through a marriage, betrayed him. Mitsuhide survived for 13 days until he was defeated by Hideyoshi at the Battle of Yamazaki. Mitsuhide is rumored to have been killed by a peasant warrior with a bamboo spear by the name of Nadamura; however, there were also rumors that he was not killed, but rather started a new life as a priest called Tenkai. Akechi died in 1582 at age 54.
