ACM Tokugawa Ieyasu

Tokugawa Ieyasu

Tokugawa Ieyasu (31 January 1543 – 1 June 1616), born Matsudaira Takechiyo, was the founder and first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, which ruled from 1600 until 1868.

Ieyasu was one of many warlords of the Sengoku period, and opposed Templar influence spreading through the country; as such, he tasked his former squire Chaya Shirōjirō Kiyonobu with reporting any Templar activity in the land, and was the lord of the Assassin Hattori Hanzō. At the Battle of Sekigahara on 21 October 1600, Ieyasu defeated Ishida Mitsunari and united the land under the Tokugawa.


  • While not clearly identified as an Assassin, the fact that Tokugawa gave orders and missions to Assassins like Yamauchi Taka or Hattori Hanzō, as well as the presence on his helmet of the Assassin insignia, seems to indicate that Tokugawa may have been a high ranking member of the Assassins.
