Background and rise to the throne
Deaths within the Royal family
He married Lady Yeon, probably from the Yeonna-bu region. In 251, he came across a beautiful woman with nine-feet black hair from Gwanna region. Needless to say, two wives of Jungcheon argued severely at all times, trying to fend off each other out of king’s eyesight. Eventually, Lady Gwanna was put to get drowned by angered king in the Yellow Sea. Although Lady Gwanng had one son with Jungcheon, he never got an opportunity to be a crown prince and in 255, Yak-ro, a son with Lady Yeon got the seat in 255, later Seocheon of Goguryeo.
War with the Wei
In 259,[not in citation given] the Cao Wei general Wei Chijie invaded with his army. The king sent 5,000 cavalry to fight them in the Yangmaek region; the Wei forces were defeated and some 8,000[not in citation given] slain.
