Anjō Motonobu (安条元信?, 7 December 1544 – 3 October 1589), is a daimyō from the Sengoku Period of Mitoyagi. He is the leader of the Anjō clan from 1564 until his death at the battle of Mogami in 1589. He was regarded as one of Honda Shigetada's most reliable and trusted advisors, and his daughter Hatsu-no-kata was the primary wife of Shigetada.

The Anjō clan under Motonobu was under the Taketoyo clan but were demoted from the fudai to the tozama after the maneuvers by the Taketoyo adviser Hachisuka Koroku; in an attempt to take over the small, but strategic town of Mikata from the Anjō. In response, Motonobu cut off all of his ties to the Taketoyo and sided with Ogasawara Terumasa, sending his daughter Hatsu-no-kata to be wed to Terumasa. However, Terumasa refused to be married to her but Honda Shigetada suggested to be married with her as a vassal of the Ogasawara and support the Anjō clan. Motonobu, moved by the act, decided to become a vassal of Shigetada.

What is TALOD?

Hello, we are TALOD, an independent group that are interested in the inner workings of Asian Culture and other things that may seem to be interesting to us! While it may seem to be an organized city-building oriented union on the outside, TALOD is NOT a union and will not be accepting any new members. It takes a momentous amount of effort and trust before you gain any access to TALOD, almost akin to a circle of friends. If you lose the trust of the majority the member is subject to expulsion to the group and its organization. You can now put in any content at the TALOD website, such as things that aren't directly related to city building such as information about people and so on.
