Takechiyo (竹千代, Takechiyo) is the second (eldest surviving) of Ieyasu's grandsons; apparently somewhat of a dimwit. This trait causes a rift to form within the Shogunate, with some high-ranking officials (icluding his own mother) demanding his smarter younger brother become Shogun. He is cared for by Ofuku and is represented by Iga Tsubagakure. As an adult he is renamed Iemitsu Tokugawa and succeeds his father as Shogun.
