Taira No Koremori

Taira No Koremori

Taira no Koremori (平 維盛?) (1160–1184?) was one of the Taira clan's commanders in the Genpei War of the late Heian period of Japanese history.

He was the eldest son of Taira no Shigemori, who was the eldest son and heir of Taira no Kiyomori.

In contrast to his father Shigemori, who was a brave warrior, Koremori grew up to be a young nobleman who loved poetry and music.

He was defeated at the battle of Fujigawa in 1180, and again at the battle of Kurikara. In 1184, he fled from the battle of Yashima, and is said to have committed suicide.
