EtymologyEdit

The word genji has a variety of historical significances in Japanese culture. The Minamoto Clan was also called the Genji Clan, and Minamoto was a surname commonly bestowed on the children of the Emperor that were not eligible for the throne. A book titled The Tale of Genji also exists, often considered the first novel, which follows royal figures. Genji is also a short period in Japanese history, lasting only a single year from 1864-1865.

Benkei is said to have posted himself at Gojō Bridge in Kyoto, where he disarmed every passing swordsman, eventually collecting 999 swords. On his 1000th duel, Benkei was defeated by Minamoto no Yoshitsune, a son of the warlord Minamoto no Yoshitomo. Benkei is wellknown for wearing heavy armor while he was with Minamoto no Yoshitomo.
