||Tokiwa Gozen was the number one beauty in the Heian period.
Emperor Kujo has gathered 1,000 beauties in Kyoto.
From 1,000 people, 100 people and 10 people were selected, and the last beautiful woman to win was Tokiwa.
When Tokiwa Gozen was 17 years, she married with the head of Genji, Yoshitomo Minamoto, and had three boys.
However, his husband, Yoshitomo fought and defeated Kiyomori Taira, and the Genji were almost defeated.
Tokiwa Gozen escaped from Kyoto to Yoshino with three children in the snow.
However, when she heard that Kiyomori had captured her mother, she reluctantly took her children to appear at Kiyomori.
"It may be inevitable that my children will be killed, but kill me before that."
Kiyomori fascinated the beauty of Tokiwa and he said, "If you could become my second wife, the lives of the children would be helped. However, they must become monks."
Tokiwa Gozen saved her children by her own beauty.
At this time, the last child held in the arm of Tokiwa was Ushiwakamaru.
After growing up, as Yoshitsune Minamoto, he destroys the Heike with genius tactics and revenges for his father and mother.
