This is a completely random historical post about a really random historical person.



(It's Yoshitsune in the background and Shizuka Gozen in the front)

But oooooh, this would make SUCH an awesome novel.

Who? A twelfth century Japanese temple dancer, Shizuka Gozen.

I have never heard of her before, and went looking her up because [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore told me that she is the OTP of Yoshitsune, a legendary tragic (and real) samurai/warlord who is the protagonist of the taiga drama of the same name she is currently watching.

And heeeee! She is totally famous. She appears in a bunch of kabuki plays, a puppet play (!!) and prints, and I found a bunch of webpages about her and her relationship with Yoshitsune (who was a legendary nobleman/fighter/general who ended up pissing his brother who became shogan and who hunted him to death).

But eeeee! Seriously. This reads like some sort of crazy kdrama. Or romance novel. Only depressing. OK, fine, a Victorian novel then.

Normally, I wouldn't cut for 'spoilers' for a historical person who's been dead for 800 years, but since this would constitute major spoilers for the drama and I know most people on my flist are as unfamiliar with this as I am, I am cutting for spoilers.

Cool story here )
