Ashikaga Yoshikazu

was the 5th shogun of the Ashikaga shogunate who reigned from 1423 to 1425 during the Muromachi period of Japan. Yoshikazu was the son of the fourth shogun Ashikaga Yoshimochi.Titsingh, Isaac. (1834). [http://books.google.com/books?id=18oNAAAAIAAJ&pg=PP9&dq=nipon+o+dai+itsi+ran#PRA1-PA329,M1 "Annales des empereurs du japon," p. 329.] ]

Yoshimochi ceded power to his son, and Yoshikazu became "Seii Taishogun" at age 18; [Titsingh, p. 329;Screech, Timon. (2006). [http://books.google.com/books?id=BLzQA7cpr7wC&printsec=references&dq=timon+screech&source=gbs_toc_s&cad=1#PRA2-PA234,M1 "Secret Memoirs of the Shoguns: Isaac Titsingh and Japan, 1779-1822," p. 234 n.10] -- "Yoshikasu (b.1407 - named shogun in 1423) = 18yrs. In this period, [http://books.google.com/books?id=BLzQA7cpr7wC&printsec=references&dq=timon+screech&source=gbs_toc_s&cad=1#PRA2-PA234,M1 "children were considered one year old at birth and became two the following New Year's Day; and all people advanced a year that day, not on their actual birthday."] "] but he would die within two years. [Titsingh, [http://books.google.com/books?id=18oNAAAAIAAJ&pg=PP9&dq=nipon+o+dai+itsi+ran#PRA1-PA330,M1 p. 330.] ] According to "Oguri Hangan ichidaiki," Yoshikazu's untimely death was hastened by a life of drunken dissipation. [DeBenneville, James S. (1915) [http://books.google.com/books?id=vuuevGb90hAC&printsec=frontcover&dq=ashikaga+yoshikazu&lr=&sig=dg8duiv25MK6pv_vAKtGlqqb7SQ&source=gbs_book_other_versions_r&cad=2_2#PPA136,M1 "Tales of the Samurai" ("Oguri Hangan ichidaiki"), p. 136.] ]

Significant events shape the period during which Yoshikazu was shogun:Ackroyd, Joyce. (1982) "Lessons from History: The Tokushi Yoron, p. 330.]
* 1423 -- Yoshikazu appointed shogun. [see above] ]
* 1424 -- Go-Kameyama dies. [see above] ]
* 1425 -- Yoashikazu dies; Yoshimochi resumes the responsibilities of office. [see above] ]
* 1428 -- Yoshimochi dies; Shōkō dies; Go-Hanazono ascends throne in second repudiation of agreement. [see above] ]

Yoshikazu would be succeeded ultimately by his uncle, the sixth shogun Ashikaga Yoshinori in 1429. [Titsingh, [http://books.google.com/books?id=18oNAAAAIAAJ&pg=PP9&dq=nipon+o+dai+itsi+ran#PRA1-PA333,M1 p. 333.] ]
