John Lee 47 Ronin Katana Beginning of the 18th century, the two princes Kamei Korechika and Asano Naganori by the shogun instructed to prepare a reception ceremony for the envoys of the emperor. Instructed the two were on the corrupt Ceremony Master Kira Kozuke that should teach in terms of court etiquette. This expected this but generous gifts and offerings. Unlike Kamei Asano rejected this, whereupon he was the ceremony master particularly ill-informed, insulted and provoked. After some time of Erduldens Asano finally burst the collar and he attacked Kira with his knife. Although he violated this only slightly, stood on this offense the death penalty and Asano committed seppuku, ritual suicide.Under Asano's followers there were 47 Samurai, which were by the death Ronin (masterless samurai). Although they knew that blood revenge would mean the own death, she devised a plan to the ceremony master to murder. After months of preparation did you manage to finally break into Kira's property to execute him and then remove his head.After they had laid his head down on Asano's grave, the Ronin revealed. Since they had avenged their master and thus acted within the meaning of the Samurai code, allowing the Shogun to commit suicide by seppuku, which they have not been executed as usual criminals.
