- Masamune Date -
Date Masamune (September 5, 1567 – June 27, 1636) was a Japanese samurai of the Azuchi-Momoyama period through early Edo period. Heir to a long line of powerful daimyo in the Tōhoku region, he went on to found the modern-day city of Sendai. An outstanding tactician, he was made all the more iconic for his missing eye. A case of smallpox attacked his eye and would have killed him had Date Masamune not gouged out his own eye. For this, he was often called dokuganryū , or the "one-eyed dragon".
