From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tokugawa Munetada (徳川宗尹 Tokugawa Munetada ?) (September 7, 1721-January 13, 1765) was a Japanese samurai of the mid-Edo period who was the founder of the Hitotsubashi-Tokugawa family, one of the Gosankyō, the three lesser branches of the Tokugawa family. He was the fourth son of Tokugawa Yoshimune, the eighth shogun. Munetada's wife was Tomohime (Akiko), the daughter of the imperial regent Ichijō Kaneka; she bore his eldest son, Shigemasa. Munetada also had a concubine by the name of Oyuka, who bore his sons Shigetomi, Harusada, Haruyuki, Kenzaburō, and his daughter Yasuhime (later, the wife of Shimazu Shigehide). His two other sons, Sennosuke and Kanejirō, were born by yet another concubine.
