Oda Nobunaga Report Abuse
A great warlord who managed to destroy many powerful clans in his day, including the Takeda and the Imagawa. His strange behavior and ruthlessness were well known, and he was feared for doing such things as destroying the Buddhist monasteries on Mt. Hiei simply because they opposed him. He paved the way for his vassal, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, to unify Japan.
