Saigō Takamori (1828-1877)


Takamori is considered to be the last Samurai. He wrote poetry under the name Saigō Nanshū. At one point in his life, Takamori went into exile and was declared dead. However, during this period, he continued to be consulted for political advice. Saigō is the family name which, in English, would be called the last name.
