Korean monarchs

Gyeongju – Bulguksa
   I just gathered all tables and links and put them nicely in one place, and after that – saved it as a pdf file. I added also credits at the end of the file, and want to state that this one is only for scholar purposes. There are people who like historical drama and checking up the names all the time on the net may be tiring, so I thought one file would be useful.
I left only some hyperlinks, so in any case anyone may easily find more info on a certain historical figure.

Here comes the file:
List of Monarchs of Korea

    Interesting indeed. More names than I had ever heard about. One Queen?? It came to mind that when in the early days the states were north into Manchuria, they would have been speaking a different language ?? When did the Korean language take over and was it fter the southern states came into being.
    So we shouldn't think of Jumong anymore as the son of Dae Mosul. Great grandson. These drama writers must play around with history to their hearts content as long as they get the characters they like in one place…
    Thanks Ethlenn

    It was rather one proto-Korean then. Or archaic Korean. The name of my blog doesn't sound Korean but it is, it is very, very old Korean. After that, when Unified Silla ceased to exist and in Goryeo period – classical Korean.
    I will try to find some articles on this topic. I know I have somewhere one article about the typology of Korean and Japanese (after all, those two are the closest to one another) and will post it here for further reading.

    And as for Jumong – well, it's pre-historic times, and I think writers may play with whatever they want. It's like with the Arthurian legends. If something has no solid proof (like tomb, site, temple), it may be used and re-used in many different ways. It's all about the legends afterall.
