Birth Of Nobunaga
After Nobunaga's birth, Nobuhide wanted his son to succeed him after he died. At the time, Nobuhide was constantly being defeated by the Imagawa clan, especially at the Battle Of Azukizaka. Nobuhide did not what know what to do, so his retainer, Masahide Hirate, advised him to form a Templar Order.
The Rise of Nobuhide
Nobuhide, taking his advice to heart, formed a Templar Order.
At first, it was just Nobuhide and Masahide, but as time went on, they recruited more and more members each day.
Nobuhide then appointed himself Head Master, and Nobunaga would become the next head master of the Templar Order after Nobuhide.
