Her father, King Chinp’yong, reigned for fifty years, but had no sons to inherit the throne. Since she was his eldest daughter, she became queen when he died. Under her rule she defended her kingdom, Silla, from invaders of the other two powerful kingdoms. Types of Government Another very powerful political ruler of Korea was King Sejong. King Sejong was the founder of the Choson dynasty. King Sejongs brother was suppose to receive the throne but it was passed over to King Sejong. He was married at the age of twelve.
