Nobuhide and Mikawa

There is an article out by the Yomiuri Shinbum on Nobunaga's father, Oda Nobuhide and Mikawa Province.  According to Chukyo University professor Mikio Muraoka, Nobuhide ruled Mikawa for a bit.  I am skeptical about it and this is just a new theory.  The article explains the conflicts between Oda Nobuhide and Matsudaira Hirotada.  Hirotada requests help from the Imagawa.  Hirotada's son Takechiyo (Tokugawa Ieyasu) was supposed to go to the Imagawa.  However, Toda Yasumitsu of Tahara Castle in Mikawa betrays the Matsudaira and Takechiyo is sent to the Oda.  For two years young Ieyasu is a hostage of the Oda.  In 1549, Anjo Castle is retaken by the Imagawa and Oda Nobuhiro is captured.  Both families agree to exchange the hostages at Kasadera in Owari.  As for why the Toda betrayed, there is still a lot of mysteries.

Nobunaga no tame!
