 +'''​Sekiryo Yamauchi'''​ (山内 積良, 1883–1949) was the second president of [[Nintendo|Nintendo Playing Card Co, Ltd.]]
  
 +He was born Sekiryo Kaneda (金田 積良). When he married Tei Yamauchi, the daughter of Nintendo founder [[Fusajiro Yamauchi]], he assumed her family name. When his father-in-law retired in 1929, he took over the family business and became the president of Nintendo.
 +
 +By the time he took control of the company, Nintendo was the largest card manufacturer in Japan. In 1933, he renamed the company Yamauchi Nintendo and Co. In 1947, he established a distribution company named Marufuku Co. Ltd., which distributed Nintendo'​s playing cards throughout Japan. ​
 +
 +In 1949, he retired following a stroke, and he died shortly afterward. Sekiryo Yamauchi'​s son had left his own son and his wife Kimi, so the family business passed down to his grandson instead. [[Hiroshi Yamauchi]], the great-grandson of Nintendo founder Fusajiro Yamauchi, became the third president of Nintendo in 1949.
