Moon Goddess of Goguryeo

Korean mythology consists of national legends and folk-tales which come from all over the Korean Peninsula.The original religion of Korea was a form of the Eurasian shamanism and the totemism of Far East Asia, specifically of the nomadic peoples of present-day Manchuria. These were strongly colored by the later importations of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism from China.

Goguryeo (traditional founding date 37 BC; probably 2nd century BC AD 668) was a kingdom in the northern Korean Peninsula and Manchuria. It was one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea, along with Baekje and Silla.

The modern English name "Korea" derives from the Goryeo Dynasty (935-1392). Goguryeo was also called Goryeo at that time (See Names of Korea). It is not clear what "Goguryeo" means, but it has been suggested that the name is related to a Korean word "Guri", meaning copper, because Goguryeo was famous for its copper mines.[1]. In addition, the Korean people may have once been called "Guhwan". Some scholars have suggested that "Guhwan" was changed to "Guri" or "Guryeo" when it was transliterated into the Chinese writing system. Thus, "Goguryeo" means the nation of "Guryeo" or "Guhwan", whose rulers have a family name of Go.

Goryeo-era records say it was founded in 37 BC by Jumong, although it probably dates back to the 2nd century BC, around the time of Gojoseon's fall. Other small states in the former Gojoseon territory included Buyeo, Okjeo and Dongye, all of which were later conquered by Goguryeo. It was a major regional power of East Asia until it was defeated by a Silla-Tang alliance in 668. After its defeat, it was divided between the Unified Silla and Balhae states of Korea.
