Princess of Ayodhya - Queen of a Korean Kingdom - 48 A.D.



Heo Hwang-ok - Queen of Geumgwan Gaya

This is a Korean name; the family name of the princess is Heo.


Heo Hwang-ok is mentioned in Samguk Yusa, a 13th-century Korean chronicle as the queen. She was the wife of King Suro of Geumgwan Gaya kingdom. The legend states that she arrived on a boat from a distant kingdom, and married the king in the year 48 CE. She was the first queen of Geumgwan Gaya. Now, researchers of South Korea, conclude that she came from Ayodhya.

A memorial to her is built in Ayodhya.


Six million Koreans trace their descent to her.

We need to know more about her.
