Senhime (1597-1666) was the wife of Toyotomi Hideyori, son of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The scene is maybe taking place during the besieging of Osaka castle by Tokugawa Ieyasu’s troops, wanting to get rid of the last remnants of the Toyotomi clan. Senhime survived the fall the castle but her husband committed suicide with his mother, Yodo-dono.
