"Lord Kazusa no Suke, your humble Nou shall turn into a demon, if need be...!!"

Nōhime is the wife of Oda Nobunaga. Like her spouse, she uses firearms in battle.

Description[edit | edit source]

The beautiful and elegant Lady Nōhime is a pleasant sight among the demon-like Oda army. She has been brought up as a princess, apparently: her mannerism and way of speaking reflect this. The other defining trait she holds is her undying love for the Demon King, Oda Nobunaga. Nouhime holds dear memories of her father, Saitou Dousan; she invokes him many times when entering the fray, or falling into a pinch. In fact, her loyalty and attachment to Nobunaga (the man who crushed the Saitou heiarchy) are absolute. In Sengoku BASARA 2, hearing news about Nobunaga's supposed death sent her on a "death marathon" towards the Honnoji temple, a feat almost unbelievable for a woman that hates war so much. She has a soft spot for children in general: Mori Ranmaru was as a son to her, and she finds it extremely difficult to defeat Itsuki. In the story, the person she seems to fear (and hate) most is Takeda Shingen, of course because he's a great enemy of the Oda, but also because the destiny he brought upon Uesugi Kenshin and his right-hand woman, Kasuga. She's in a very good relationship with the Maeda, who are all very protective and fond of her. In her ending in Sengoku BASARA 2 it is hinted that she is pregnant with Nobunaga's child.

She was confirmed dead in Sengoku BASARA 3. She was killed along with Oda Nobunaga and Mori Ranmaru in Honnoji temple backstory.

Historical information[edit | edit source]


Nōhime also, Nouhime, Kichō or Lady/Princess Noh1535 - ?

Was the wife of Oda Nobunaga, a major daimyo during the Sengoku period of Japanese history. Her proper name was Kichō, but since she came from Mino Province, she is most commonly referred to as Nōhime (Princess of Mino). She was renowned for her beauty and cleverness.

Nōhime's father was the daimyo Saitō Dōsan and her mother was known as Omi no Kata. Nōhime herself appears very little in any historical record, and there is not a lot of information on the dates of her birth or death; however, proposed dates for her birth fall between 1533–1535.

Nōhime was said to be extremely intelligent and stunningly beautiful. At their wedding, Nobunaga described her as having "the mind of a genius and the appearance of a goddess." She was married to him in 1549, during a truce between his father, Nobuhide, and Saitō Dōsan.

The marriage was a political gesture and many believe there was little love between Nōhime and Nobunaga. Though she was the official wife of Oda Nobunaga, it is often believed that he focused his love on his concubine, Kitsuno, who bore him his first son, Nobutada. Nōhime was never able to conceive a child with Nobunaga and it was believed that she was barren. Three years after the Honnoji Rebellion and Nobunaga's death, one of his sons gave money to Nōhime.

Through lack of historical record there is not much information of what became of Nōhime or even the date of her death. Overall, it can be said that Nōhime's life as it is known now is more of a mixture of legends, folktales, and tentative half-truths. Nōhime's grave can be found at Sōken-in (総見院), a subtemple of Daitoku-ji in Kyoto.
