Hatakeyama Yoshitaka

Hatakeyama Yoshitaka (畠山 義隆 died 1576) was a Japanese daimyō of the Sengoku period, who was the 11th head of the Hatakeyama of Noto Province. It is commonly believed that the Cho clan and their supporters usurped Yoshitaka's position later that year and had murdered him in 1576.

Some sources state that he lived up until 1577, committing suicide after Uesugi Kenshin had besieged Nanao Castle[1]
