Toyotomiball (Toyotomi Hideyoshi) ruled Japanball after the death of his best friend, Oda Clanball (Oda Nobunaga). He ended the Sengoku period (warring-states of Japan) and ruled ruthlessly, disempowering those he hated and giving power to those he favored. He was a very important daimyō (feudal lord), warrior, general, samurai, and politician.
In 1592, Toyotomiball ordered the Japanese invasions of Joseonball(1592–1598) in order to reach Mingball. He quickly captured Joseonball's capital, but Admiral Yi won many battles in the sea. The initial invasion was in 1592 which was a success. Then there was a brief truce in 1596. After that there was a second invasion in 1597, but Joseonball with the help of Mingball pushed him back. He retreated in 1597.
But just before the final wars, somehow he lost as he died at 61 years old in 1598. His death paved the way for Tokugawaball to rise to power a few years later.
