  • Japanese: 黒田 斉溥 (Kuroda Narihiro)

Kuroda Narihiro was a lord of Fukuoka han.

Born into the Shimazu clan as a son of Shimazu Shigehide, lord of Kagoshima han, Narihiro was adopted by Kuroda Narikiyo.[1]

In 1851, he played a role alongside Date Munenari and others in convincing (or forcing) Shimazu Narioki to abdicate as lord of Kagoshima in favor of his son Shimazu Nariakira.[2]
