This page is not intended to be a complete history of the Late Hōjō Clan, but merely a listing of those clan members who are mentioned on individual shrine pages.

Not related to the original Hōjō clan. Its founder, Hōjō S ōun, adopted what was by then the illustrious name to improve his own clan's image.
