Takeda Shingen, original name Takeda Harunobu (1 December 1521 - 13 May 1573), was a pre-eminent daimyo (feudal lord) and one of the most-famous military leaders of Japan. He is especially well known for a series of battles (1553 - 64) with the noted warrior Uesugi Kenshin, which are famous in the annals of Japanese history, and are also much celebrated in Japanese drama and folklore.
