From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Matsudaira Hirotada (松平 広忠 ?, June 9, 1526—April 3, 1549) was the lord of Okazaki Castle in Mikawa province, Japan during the Sengoku Period of the 16th century. He is best known for being the father of Tokugawa Ieyasu, founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

Hirotada was the son of Matsudaira Kiyoyasu (7th head of Mikawa Matsudaira clan) and an unknown lady, probably the daughter of Aoki Kaga no Kami Norimune. He was known in his childhood as Senshōmaru, Senchiyo, and Jirōzaburō. A relatively unknown figure himself, he was nonetheless the father of Matsudaira Takechiyo, who would later change his name to Tokugawa Ieyasu.
