Sang-nu (상루, 尙婁) (?-294) was the Prime Minister of Goguryeo during the reign of King Seocheon, and the son of previous Prime Minister Eum-u.

Background[edit]

Sang-nu, like his father, was from the Biryu-Bu of Goguryeo. His last name and ancestry is also unknown, but it is known that he and his father possessed considerable amount of power over the nobles. Sang-Noo was the first Prime Minister to have inherited the position of Prime Minister from his father.

Life[edit]

Very little is mentioned on this figure. This lack of mention in historical records may signify that Prime Minister Sang-nu was an excellent government official, or an incompetent one. This cannot be known. Sang-nu died in the year 294, during the 3rd year of the reign of King Bongsang, and was succeeded by Chang Jo-ri.
