TOKUGAWA Hidetada was a second shogun of Tokugawa shogunate, heir of Tokugawa Ieyasu and father of Tokugawa Iemitsu, Tadanaga and Sen. He was born in Hamamatsu, Totomi and married O hime, adopted daughter of TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi. But he was forced to divorce her and remarried Go, daughter of AZAI Nagamasa, adopted daughter of Hideyoshi and the youngest sister of Yodo Dono (Chacha).

He became a shogun in 1605. It made Yodo Dono who thought her son Hideyori would succeed Ieyasu angry and then the relationship between the Tokugawas and the Toyotomis became unstable. It caused the Siege of Osaka at last. After the war, his father Ieyasu died and he laid the foundation of the shogunate.

Moreover, he tried to control the Imperial court and temples and shrines. He prohibited priest wear purple garb, the one for highest-ranking priest without the permission of shogun and opposed against the Emperor Gomizunoo in this respect. However, he made his daughter Masako marry him and their daughter Princess Okiko became the Empress Meisho later.

The Battle of Sekigahara was supposed to be his first battle. But on the way he suffered from bad weather and the schemes of SANADA Masayuki, lord of Ueda Castle and couldn't participate in the battle. It made his father Ieyasu angry. Then he learned from it and hurried to Osaka when the winter campaign of the siege of Osaka occurred. But it incurred the displeasure of Ieyasu again. He told his son that a shogun should not behave hastily.

He died in 1632 and was buried at the Taitoku-in Mausoleum.

In this series, he is described as a rather rash man who is advised ironically by HONDA Masanobu, one of senior vassals of Ieyasu. He usually feels small in his father's presence and has sympathy for SANADA Nobuyuki in this respect.
