Iweko Shibatsu 3

Iweko Shibatsu

Progressive was the title given to those samurai who supported Iweko Shibatsu as the next Imperial Heir to Empress Iweko I. Those who supported his brother, Iweko Seiken, were known as Traditionalists. [1] Although they did not sanction action against one another, their followers took that initiative on their own. [2]

Progressive Supporters Edit

The Scorpion Clan initially supported Iweko Seiken, largely because of their close ties to the Crab, but they also shared valuable information to Iweko Shibatsu, even exposing the secret military plans of the Traditionalists. [3] A Progressive alliance was formally declared in 1199, at Imperial winter court. [4]

Aftermath Edit

The Empress appointed Iweko Seiken as the new Emperor, [5] with the title Iweko II. [6]
