Lady Hangaku (坂額御前 Hangaku Gozen?) was a female warrior samurai.  She  lived during the end of the Heian and the beginning of the Kamakura periods. In 1201, together with her nephew Jō Sukemori, she raised an army in response to Sukemoto's attempt (the Kennin Uprising) to overthrow the Kamakura Shogunate.  Hangaku commanded 3,000 soldiers to defend against an army of 10,000 soldiers loyal to the Hōjō clan.  (Hangaku Gozen by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi  ca. 1885.)
