The Jeongan Kingdom (정안국 or 定安國, 938-986) was a successor state of Balhae founded by Lie Wanhua. The official Chinese historical record, the History of Song states that Jeongan derives from Mahan or possibly a descendant of Mohe people.
Establishment and Downfall
When Khitan Liao Dynasty forces deposed Balhae in 926, a few officials of the fallen kingdom, led by the Dae clan, established Later Balhae. However, in 935, General Lie Wanhua took control of the government after the death of the Dae clan king, and changed the state name to Jeongan. Jeongan is recorded to have enlisted the assistance of neighboring tribes with the hopes of overthrowing the Khitan, but apparently failed to do so. The Lie clan was replaced by the Wu clan in 976, and was ruled by Wu Xuanming until before it was finally destroyed by the Khitans in 986 CE.
