CE 1218. A New Hope?: Mongol Suzerainty

9/25/2017
More
The Mongols enter the peninsula ostensibly to rid it of the Khitan. It's a brief honeymoon period until the Mongols force Goryeo into its suzerainty. The relationship rapidly deteriorates from there. It’s a short period in time, just 16 years from 1218-1231, but it’s chock full of geopolitics. Not so much battle scenes, which is in the next episode, but plenty of diplomatic intrigue and a little spy craft thrown in. I’m excited, and I know you are, too.

CE 1170: The Military Coup

8/21/2017
More
Today, we’re going to talk about my favorite period in Korean history: the Military coup of 1170. Why is this my favorite? Because of the chaos. I’m talking slave and peasant rebellions. Even monks revolt! The king's spine is snapped in two and his body is rolled into a rug and thrown into the lake. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s start at the beginning.
