Ōsu

Ōsu (大碓皇子) was the son of Emperor Keikō and Harima no Inabi no Ōiratsume.

He was the twin of Yamato Takeru having been born on the same day.

During his father reign, he was sent to collect the daughters of Kambone by the names of Anetohoko and Ototohoko as his father wanted to marry them. However, Ōsu decides he wants to marry them himself and takes them to bed.

The Emperor later finds out and is furious.1
