Chapter Summary

At a relatively early time, the Puyŏ people formed a state in central Manchuria which endured for a lengthy period. One branch migrated south, giving rise to the Kyeru Bu royal house, and as Koguryŏ developed it had an ongoing relationship with Puyŏ. The royal house of Paekje also had Puyŏ origins and for a time in the mid-sixth century Paekje referred to itself as South Puyŏ. This chapter identifies the location of the Puyŏ-guk capital up until the first half of the third century and looks at Puyŏ history in light of the tumultuous international situation after the second half of that century. Next it examines the interrelationships, locations and characteristics of Puyŏ, North Puyŏ and East Puyŏ. In addition, the chapter discusses what is said of Paekje in records of the political shifts in Puyŏ-guk during the mid-fourth century.

Keywords: Koguryŏ; Kyeru Bu royal house; mid-fourth century; Puyŏ people
