Moved Power Rangers content to Shimazu (Power Rangers). As Secretlondon noted, Shimazu has an existence outside Power Rangers. Updated links from Power Rangers pages. w:ja:島津 Japanese Wikipedia has much more content on this powerful family spanning 34 generations. Fg2 00:28, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)

article a mess[edit]

This article needs to get its information in order and synch it with the Shimazu family member sub-articles. The "order of succession claims (for instance) that Shimazu Katsuhisa was the 16th head of the family yet the Shimazu Katsuhisa article itself says he was the 14th. Shimazu Tadayoshi is listed as the 32nd head in chronological order yet Tadayoshi lived in the 16th century. Fred26 12:50, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

The list was taken from the ja wikipedia, and is the only source I've found thus far for a list... hopefully I or someone else will come across a better list somewhere. LordAmeth 14:32, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

New Content[edit]

Content added today by User: needed quite a bit of grammar & style work, which I think I've done a fair job of cleaning up. Still, I feel that his contribution is largely unnecessary, redundant, and undefended by citations. Essentially, it's all just POV about how great the Shimazu were. I'd feel bad to simply delete the whole thing simply as a kneejerk reaction to thinking it poorly written or whatever - does anyone want to take a stab at incorporating this better into the content of the article, fixing up the style, adding some citations? Thanks. LordAmeth 00:06, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Satsuma clan[edit]

Satsuma clan redirects to this article, but Satsuma Clan links to its own article. Can anybody with better knowledge of which is proper fix this? Douggers (talk) 05:31, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

The fall of the Shimazu clan[edit]

There is a complete and noticeable absence of any section dedicated to the end of the clan's history, after its contribution to the Meiji restoration there is no further mention of its history and it's fading into obscurity. What would also be appreciated would be a family tree showing the descendents of the the daimyos and retainers. Many thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:610:308:693:64BA:8573:219D:1330 (talk) 22:12, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
