Taewang, meaning "The Great King," was the title used by the rulers of Goguryeo (고구려), the northermost of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.

History

Goguryeo (37 BCE - 668) was established and ruled by the descendants of Jumong. Long after Jumong, King Gwanggaeto Taewang, the 19th King of Goguryeo, greatly expanded Goguryeo's territory to more than twice the size of the Korean peninsula. The Taewangs remained completely independent of the ancient chinese dynasties until the reign of Goguryeo's 27th ruler, King Yeongryu Taewang, who submitted to Tang Taizong, despite Goguryeo's victory over the Sui Dynasty. Goguryeo fell in 668, during the reign of Goguryeo's 28th ruler, King Bojang Taewang.
