     The Rōnin was a samurai with no lord or master during the feudal period (1185-1868) of Japan. The Ronin Samurai would wonder the lands typically as a mercenary or hired body guard. The Ronin were also known for dueling for honor, fame and/or money. Like regular samurai, Ronin wore their two swords. Ronin used a variety of other weapons too. One of the most famous of Ronin in history was Miyamoto Musashi as well as the story of The Seven Samurai.

     During the Edo period, with the shogunate's rigid class system and laws, the number of Ronin greatly increased. Confiscation of fiefs during the rule of the third Tokugawa shogun Iemitsu resulted in an especially large increase of Ronin. During previous ages, samurai were easily able to move between masters and even between occupations. They would also marry between classes. However, during the Edo period, samurai were restricted, and were above all forbidden to become employed by another master without their previous master's permission. Also, low-level samurai, often poor and without choice, were forced to quit or escape their masters.
