Hōjō Masako (北条 政子, 1156 – August 16, 1225) is known in Japanese history as the  'ama shogun' or 'nun shogun' (尼将軍). Hojo grew up a tom-boy. Her story is very cool for her time.....falling in love with a prisoner; running away into the mountains with her lover; being protected by warrior monks; her lover/husband is really the undisputed leader of Japan. When her husband, Yoritomo died, Hojo shaved her head and became a nun but remained active in political affairs. She is one of the most powerful female leaders in Japan's political history.
