Nunakinobime

Nunakinobime (渟名城入姫命) was the daughter of Emperor Sujin and Ohoamahime.123

The nihongi relates that when the Emperor seperated the worship of Amaterasu and Ōkuninushi, Ōkuninushi was placed under her care. However it states that she was bald and lean and therefore unfit for the role.1
