Korean dramas sparked my interest in Korean history This valuable historical document has come down to us thanks to the memoirs of the wife of a crown prince in 18th century Korea

Korean dramas sparked my interest in Korean history. After watching the Yi San series, which is based on the life of "the Royal Grandson," I wanted to learn more about the events leading to the death of Crown Prince Sado. My interest led me to this book. This valuable historical document has come down to us thanks to the memoirs of the wife of a crown prince in 18th century Korea.

This novel was written over an eleven-year period by Lady Hong, the wife of Prince Sado, to show her grandson, King Sunjo, that her family was not at fault for the death of Prince Sado. Although she does not outright say that it is King Yongjo's fault for Prince Sado's death, she certainly implies that it is the King's fault because of his inadequacy as a father.

Memoirs of a Korean Queen provides a rare example of writing by a Korean woman during this period, and an equally rare view of her life and the lives of those around her. Two hundred years later, Lady Hong shines through as a thoughtful, intelligent woman whose life was circumscribed by the custom, culture, and Confucianism of her time-the same custom, culture, and religion that provided her with the strength to endure.

Korean dramas sparked my interest in Korean history. After watching the Yi San series, which is based on the life of "the Royal Grandson," I wanted to learn more about the events leading to the death of Crown Prince Sado. My interest led me to this book.

Lady Hong married Crown Prince Sado of Korea at the age of 10. She wrote her memoirs to her grandson, King Sunjo of Joseon, when she was in her 60's. Her purpose: to ensure that he knew the truth about the Imo Incident. The Imo incident involves the cruel and unusual death of Crown Prince Sado by order of his father, King Yeongjo of Joseon. In her memoirs, Lady Hong relates her perspective and insights of the issues and events leading to the tragedy.

18th Century Korea was a nation strictly adhering to Confucian principles. The role of women did not include education as a high priority. Indeed, few women could read and write at that time. The fact that Lady Hong was an educated woman was unusual; her memoirs describing this incident as someone who lived through it is rarer still. The book is a must read for anyone interested in the study of 18th century Korean history.

This valuable historical document has come down to us thanks to the memoirs of the wife of a crown prince in 18th century Korea. Her eyewitness account gives details of court life, including its rigid etiquette, clothing, rituals and customs of that era, which make fascinating reading. The power of the king was absolute, and life and death depended utterly on his favor or lack thereof. He and the prince both tortured and killed people with an incredibly casual attitude and the ultimate fate of the prince himself is shocking. I knew this story before I read the book, but that didn't lessen the impact of what took place in those times. We are lucky that Lady Hong had the presence of mind and writing skills to instruct us in these events just as they happened without modern twists or interpretations. Highly recommended.

I enjoy reading about history especially if it's an autobiography. Although this princess story is not what you find in fairy tales, it was amazing to find out how tragic a life of "privilege" could be during those times. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the real life of Korean royalty in the 1700's.

I first heard of this story through the various Korean dramas I watch. I wanted some history to go with the stories, and found this. It is a lot more interesting than I expected. I know that TV tends to exaggerate, but this shows that the TV shows didnt have to stray much from reality for a good story!~

Memoirs of a Korean Queen is a first person historical account about the Imo Incident (July 11, 1762). This novel was written over an eleven-year period by Lady Hong, the wife of Prince Sado, to show her grandson, King Sunjo, that her family was not at fault for the death of Prince Sado. Although she does not outright say that it is King Yongjo's fault for Prince Sado's death, she certainly implies that it is the King's fault because of his inadequacy as a father. Also, this novel is a fine example of Confucian values that were set forth in that time of Korea. It is these Confucian values that gave her the strength to continue; while at the same time it rendered her powerless.
