The Battle for the Sundered Realm - Factions

The Battle for Sekigahara

On October 21, 1600, the Eastern and Western Armies clashed near the small village of Sekigahara on the Nakasendo Road in central Honshu. The dramatic battle established Lord Tokugawa Ieyasu as hegemon over all Japan and ended any claim to supremacy by the Toyotomi family. Tokugawa Ieyasu, the last of Japan's three great unifiers, became Shogun in 1603 and established the Tokugawa Shogunate.
