Kuroda Yoshitaka (黒田 孝高, December 22, 1546 – March 20, 1604), also known as Kuroda Kanbei (黒田 官兵衛, Kuroda Kanbee), was a Japanese daimyō of the late Sengoku through early Edo periods. Renowned as a man of great ambition, he was a chief strategist and adviser to Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Kuroda became a Christian when he was 38, and received "Simeon Josui" as a baptismal name (rekishijin). His quick wit, bravery, and loyalty were respected by his warriors.
