Empress Jingu lived long before the concept of "samurai" came into being (ca 2nd century AD), but just pop empress jingu into google for some interesting reading.  This link in particular gives a synopsis of 10 samurai women:

Bestests,

BaZZa.

Nice. I have fuchigashira with the same theme as your tsuba Thierry, though I thought it was Tomoe Gozen and Minamoto no Yoshinaka. I always had my doubts, however, as Yoshinaka died before Tomoe gave birth
