EtymologyEdit

The surname of Genji refers to the onyomi reading of the Minamoto Clan. Minamoto was a surname commonly bestowed on the children of the Emperor that were not eligible for the throne. According to history and legend, they were most active in the days of the late Heian era, and were samurai that became known as the fighters of evil and keepers of peace. The time was said to have been fraught with disorder and anarchy, including bandits and demons that roamed the countryside, and due to their efforts, many future samurai often claim lineage from the clan regarding their genealogy; such samurai included Miyamoto Musashi and Tokugawa Ieyasu. They were subject of literary discourse, from The Tale of Genji, often considered the first novel, which follows royal figures, and to The Tale of the Heike, focusing on the major figures and the events of the Genpei War. Genji is also a short period in Japanese history, lasting only a single year from 1864–1865.
