    (1159-June 15, 1189)
    Member of the Minamoto Clan
    Fought in the Gempei War
    After he was born, his father and two eldest brothers were slaughtered and he was placed under the care of Fujiwara no Hidehira, head of the powerful Fujiwara Clan.
    He never met his surviving brothers until he was an adult.
    After the Gempei War, he went against brother Yorimoto only to flee to the safe haven of the Fujiwawa Clan.
    Shortly after, he was betrayed and murdered by Hidehira's son Fujiwara no Yasuhira.
    You think his buddies called him 'Yo Shits,' behind his back?
    He defeated and killed his cousin, rival, and the last Shogun of the Heian Period Minamoto no Yoshinaka at Awazu, Japan (1184).
    He fought the Taira Clan many times before destroying them at the Battle of Dan-no-ura.
    He's one of Japan's greatest folk heroes.
    He influenced and was the subject of many works of Japanese literature and drama.
