Nice Guy?

I found an online article earlier this afternoon on Nobunaga.  The article in Japanese starts off by listing Nobunaga's bloodthirsty conquests of Mt. Hiei, Nagashima, and Echizen.  Then the article explains Nobunaga's good side towards women.  The good news is there is some truth to this.  For example, he loved his concubine Kitsuno and made sure she was taken care of.  Also there is the famous letter that Nobunaga wrote to Hideyoshi's wife Ne-Ne.

That being said, Nobunaga was still Nobunaga.  There was once a group of maids who decided to skip work and have some fun back in 1581.  Once Nobunaga heard of this, he put the women to death.  No questions asked!

Tenka no tame!
