Matsudaira Ietada (松平 家忠?, 1548 – September 8, 1600), also known as Matsudaira Tomomo no Suke, was a Japanese samurai of the Sengoku period.[1]

Early life

Ietada was the eldest son of Matsudaira Koretada, who was the head of the Fukōzu branch of the Matsudaira clan. Ietada served Tokugawa Ieyasu from a young age.,[1]

He fought in many of Ieyasu's campaigns, including against Takeda Katsuyori.[1]


In 1590, Ietada was granted Oshi Domain (100,000 koku) in Musashi Province. He was transferred to Kashira Domain in 1592 and to Omigawa Domain in 1594.[1]

In 1599, he was given command of Fushimi Castle near Kyoto.[1]

He was killed fighting with Ishida Mitsunari at the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600.[1]
