1. Oryou, Geisha, mistress of a revolutionalist Ryoma Sakamoto who was assassinated 1867 (by Sgt.Steiner)
"Narasaki Ryō (July 23, 1841 – January 15, 1906) was a Japanese woman and the wife of Sakamoto Ryōma, an architect of the Meiji Restoration. She was active in political affairs via her husband during the Late Tokugawa Shogunate and the Meiji Period. She is commonly called Oryō in Japan.
Oryō is best known for saving the life of her future husband in the Teradaya Incident. While working at Kyoto’s Teradaya, Oryō overheard the arrival of assassins from her bathtub and ran naked through the inn to warn Sakamoto and his allies.Sakamoto escaped, and they were married soon after.
Sakamoto’s injuries during the attacks lead them to visit several hot springs in Kagoshima that were believed to have healing properties, in what has been said to be the first Japanese honeymoon.
After Ryōma’s assassination, she married the merchant Nishimura Matsubē, and adopted her sister’s child, who died while young.In her later years, Oryō suffered from alcoholism. Despite the fame of her first husband, Oryō died in poverty at the age of 66.” (via Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
