In addition, Hidemitsu’s younger brother [Oda Nobutsugu] entered Moriyama Castle. However, since Nobunaga’s younger brother [Hidetaka] was killed by Nobutsugu’s vassall [Suga Saizo], Nobutsugu ran away because he was worried that someone would take revenge. After Nobutsugu left, Nobunaga’s brother [Nobutoki] took over the castle. After he was killed by Nobutsugu’s vassal [Tsunoda Singo] and other forces, Moriyama Castle lost its owner again.
