Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543)

For how long did his heirs rule Japan?

Tokugawa Ieyasu (徳川 家康, January 31, 1543 – June 1, 1616) was the founder and first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, which ruled from the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600 until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. Ieyasu seized power in 1600, received appointment as shogun in 1603, abdicated from office in 1605, but remained in power until his death in 1616.

This is an interesting article for it showcases how entire nations were run by a handfull of powerful man. But have powerful men walked away in modern time to tend to their fortunes?

Will one day will war be a event of the past?

People fighting over people because everyone thinks they can do it better than the other guy. But this is only one of the many reasons that man seeks power over man.

"Now" is the eternal present.
