Tokugawa Yoshinobu (德川 慶喜; 1837 – 1913) was the 15th and last shōgun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan. His attempts to oblige mounting pressures to reform the shogunate proved unsuccessful, and in 1867, he resigned and nominally returned rule to the Imperial Court, ending the shogunate.

In 1868, Yoshinobu nonetheless came under attack from Imperial forces, leading to the outbreak of the Boshin War. The Japanese Rite of the Templar Order had infiltrated Emperor Meiji's inner circle in Kyoto and pressed for the definitive end to the Tokugawa's residual power from Edo, so that absolute authority could be restored to the Emperor. Defending Yoshinobu was the Japanese Brotherhood of Assassins,[1] who had supported Yoshinobu's ancestor Tokugawa Ieyasu during the Sengoku period, centuries before.[2]
