Samurai are japanese warriors, basically, they fought for daimyo the head, leader, or ruler of a clan. A daimyo would eventually come to the rank of shogun....

You probably mean a shogun, which is a samurai lord.

Answer 1: SAmurais served their Shogun. A shogun was the military leader and as the years went on shogans became more incharge then the emperors. Answer 2: Samurai didn't serve the shogun, they served the daimyo, the Japanese lords. Then the daimyo would give the shogun loyalty and the service of some of the daimyo's samurai, in return for land which they gave some to the samurai. The shogun has (for example) 3 lots of land - A, B, C. Two lots of samurai -A,B - serve the daimyo. The shogun gives land lot B and C to the daimyo in return for samurai lot B. The daimyo gives land lot C to the samurai in return for their service. So even though samurai lot B 'serves' the shogun, they actually do that only because they serve the daimyo.

The emperor is the queen of england, the shogun is the prime minister and the Daimyo's are the premiers, or in us shogun is president and daimyo's is the governer of state.
