Hmmmm. Well at least it proves my translator is telling me the truth :P It could possibly be "King's saddled horse" or something like that...

Thanks so much! :D

I don't know about "the king's saddled horse". If that were the case, the word for king should be on the other side of the particle, making it:

王の鞍馬

Plus...you would still have to figure out how 遮那 fits in.

Edit: wouldn't it make more sense to translate it as "the saddled horse's Shana king"?

Ah, that's true - it would be reversed. The translation you provided would make make sense, yes, but the sentance makes no sense to begin with O_o Hmmm, it seems like this is all the sentance can be made out to be, so maybe that's what it means.... :|

The Saddled Horse's Shana King.... interesting xD

Domou arigatou guys! :D

Ummmm.... It's "Kurama no Shanao." They're both proper nouns.

"Shanao" was Yoshitsune's NAME when he was young, and Kuramadera was the name of the temple where he was sent to grow up...

Then the translation changes to, "The saddled horse's King, Shanao", eh?

**his name...wtf?! oh, btw, I don't watch this anime. lol

Yeah, 遮那王 Shanaou is 源義経 Minamoto no Yoshitsune's 幼名 childhood name.
And 鞍馬 is not Anba but Kurama, which is a place name in Kyoto City.
So, 鞍馬の遮那王 "Kurama no Shanaou" merely means "Shanaou in Kurama".

OH! I get it! Yes, Shanao is his name while he is at the Kurama temple. It finally makes sense! Thaaank you so much, I was totally lost! :D

Faan-san, it's not anime, it's live-action ;)
