Jolbon was a small, Korean tribal state which arose in the northern Korean peninsula from perhaps 1st century BCE.

In 37 BCE, Jumong had fled from Dongbuyeo to avoid death at the hands of Dongbuyeo's Crown Prince Daeso, who presented great jealousy towards Jumong. After he fled, Jumong established a new kingdom in 37 BCE called Goguryeo in Jolbon region.

Jolbon was the first capital city of the ancient Korean Kingdom of Goguryeo from 37 BCE – 3 CE. [1]
