Usan State

Publié le par Tiger LEE

The nation of Usan-guk 우산국 于山國 occupied Ulleung-do and the adjacent islands (including the Liancourt Rocks) during the Korean Three Kingdoms period. According to the Samguk Sagi, it was conquered by the Silla general Lee Sabu (이사부, 異斯夫)in 512. He is said to have used wooden lions or tigers to intimidate the residents into surrendering. Usan-guk rarely enters into historical records, but appears to have continued a largely autonomous existence until annexed by Goryeo in 930.
