    Ever since the mention of Kozuki Oden being the Daimyo of Kuri, there has been absolutely no indication that their were more during Odens time, and especially not any remaining now.

    Here is an excerpt on the definition of what a Daimyo is from wikipedia.(feel free to correct me if this information is False)

    The daimyō (大名, Japanese pronunciation: [daimʲoː]) were powerful Japanese feudal lords. Subordinate to the SHOGUN, and nominally to the Emperor and the kuge, daimyō were powerful feudal rulers.

    If Oden was considered just Daimyo of Kuri, why is there no mention of daimyo controlling the other five regions such as Udon, Ringo, Kibi, and Hakumai?

    Now, the argument can be made that under Orochis rule, the beast pirates All-Stars control the five regions.

    The problem with that however is that their are only three All-Stars(or so we think), thus presumably only three of the five regions being ruled.

    Do you think Oda will expound more upon the role of Daimyo or is Oden the only figure that will carry such a title in the series?

    Yes, I think there were at one point 4 other Daimyo's plus Oden under the Shogun for the 5 regions plus capital. Onigashima being an uninhabited island.

    But after the power grab, Oden obviously being executed, the other 4 either died, went into hiding or swear allegiances to Orochi.

    I have a speculation that Orochi might have been a former Daimyo prior to accentuation. Leaving in my estimate 3 Daimyo's unaccounted for.

    We know Kuri is current being overseen by Jack, Uden by Queen leaving King unknown. I would speculate that King watches over Hakumai being the only official entrance into the country.

    So this leaves Kibi and Ringo in the unknown. Are they currently being ruled by a Beast pirate or are the Daimyo's still present.

    What do you think on the possibility of Tenguyama Hitetsu being a former Daimyo?

    What do you think of Jibu'emon of Kibi, former retainer of the Shogun just being another meaning that he was the Daimyo of Kibi that served the Shogun?

    Daimyos are basically the equivalent of nobles in Western civilization.

    Orochi most certainly was one before becoming Shogun since usually, not exclusively but it was the norm, the Shogun was chosen among the daimyos, or daimyos fought for it, and to have legitimacy, Kaidou would not pick a random dude to become his figurehead.

    Maybe they rule more than 1 region ?
    Ex: Jibuemon is a Oden retainer from Kibi (ch920),
    so maybe daimyo of kuri controls kibi too ?

    Then maybe Queen & King control 2 regions ?
    ex: Kibi/Udon for Queen as they look similar
    ex: Ringo/Hakumai for King ?

    There's no mention for daimyos =\
    but then there was 1 ancient yakuza boss per region =)

    The whole place is a wasteland where the beast pirates operate. Nothing to rule.

    Apart from the Flower capital which the shogun rules of course... He sacrificed the whole country to gain power to become the ruler of just the capital..

    A truly despicable evil

    Assuming orochi was a daimyo 20 yrs ago beside oden then that means 3 spots remaining .
    I think either are dead or become old like hygoro or moved to orochi side , maybe the weapons thief is Ringo's daimyo

    Well, we know know why there aren't any Daimyo: the bad guys killed them all. Or, then again, maybe the others are in hiding like Yasuie was?
