Appearances: Sengoku Musou (1Moushouden,2)

Ina-hime, also known as Komatsu-hime (小松姫), was the daughter of Honda Tadakatsu and was later adopted by Tokugawa Ieyasu. She was married to Sanada Nobuyuki (真田信之), Sanada Yukimura's brother. Perhaps because of her family's influence, Ina-hime's husband, Nobuyuki, would fight for the Tokugawa army during the Sekigahara campaign, unlike Yukimura and his father Masayuki, who supported the Toyotomi. In any case the marriage between Ina and Nobuyuki was very successful; She would produce two daughters for Nobuyuki and two sons, Nobumasa (信政) and Nobushige (信重).

Ina-hime is most famous for shooting arrows from Numata Castle, Nobuyuki's castle, when the Sanada laid a siege on the castle and Nobuyuki was away. Later though, Ina and Nobuyuki would request that Tokugawa Ieyasu spare Masayuki and Yukimura after the Battle of Sekigahara.
