Minamoto no Nakamitsu (源仲光)

MINAMOTO no Nakamitsu (year of birth unknown - June 27, 1180) was a busho (Japanese military commander) of the late Heian period. He was the legal son of MINAMOTO no Nakaie and had a younger brother, MINAMOTO no Nakakata. MINAMOTO no Yoshinaka (Yoshinaka KISO) was his uncle.
