Horio Tadaharu

Horio Tadaharu

Horio Tadaharu (堀尾 忠晴; 1596 – 26 October 1633) was a tozama daimyō in the Edo period. His father was Horio Tadauji and his grandfather was Horio Yoshiharu. He was the third leader of the Matsue clan.

In 1604, Tadaharu succeeded to the leadership of his house on the early death of his father Tadauji: his grandfather acted as regent because of his youth. Between 1607 and 1611 he completed the construction of Matsue Castle. In 1611, Yoshiharu died, and Tadaharu took up personal leadership. In 1619, when the domain of Fukushima Masanori was seized, Tadaharu received Hiroshima Castle, which had belonged to Masanori.

In 1633, Tadaharu died. The main line of the Horio clan thus came to an end; however, a branch of the family became retainers of the Matsudaira clan of the Matsue domain.

There is a wooden statue of Tadaharau at Enjōji Temple in Matsue.
