- Goryeong Gaya
Goryeong Gaya was one of the lesser chiefdoms of the
Gaya confederacyduring the Korean Three Kingdoms period. It was centered in present-day SangjuCity, North Gyeongsangprovince, South Korea. Legend indicates that it was founded by a King Taejo, to whom a tomb on Obong Mountain in Hamchang-eup, Sangju, is attributed.
An alliance of marriage was established between
Sillaand Goryeong Gaya in 522. For this reason, Goryeong Gaya did not participate in the Baekje-Daegaya offensive against Silla in 538. However, it does not appear that this alliance was of any lasting benefit to the kingdom. According to both the " Samguk Sagi" and the Japanese chronicle " Nihonshoki", Goryeong Gaya fell to Silla in 562. This was the same year that Daegayawas overrun in the south.
The members of today's
Hamchang Kimlineage trace their origins to the kings of Goryeong Gaya.
