The Siege of Ichijōdani (一乗谷の役 Ichijōdani no Eki?, or, more commonly, 一乗谷の陣 Ichijōdani no Jin) was a series of battles undertaken by the Honda shogunate against the Ii clan, and ending with the deaths of the leaders of both clans as well as the so-called "Great Reconciliation". The siege put an end to the last major armed opposition to the shogunate's establishment.
