King Chungsuk of Goryeo (30 July 1294 – 3 May 1339) was king of the Goryeo (Korea), from 1313 to 1330 and again from 1332 to 1339.

Biography[edit]

In 1314 King Chungseon passed the throne to his son King Chungsuk. In 1321 King Chungsuk fathered his son King Chunghye. This prompted the previous crown prince of Goryeo, Öljeyitü, to establish an alliance with Emperor Sidibala, and King Chungsuk was thus interned in 1321. However, Sidibala was assassinated in 1323 and Öljeitü's plan was aborted.

King Chungsuk, who was allowed to return to Goryeo in 1325, passed the throne to King Chunghye in 1330 but was reinstated after two years because King Chunghye was deposed by Yuan.

King Chungsuk died in 1339.
