Namhae of Silla (?-24, r. 4–24 CE) was the second King of Silla, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. He is commonly called Namhae Chachaung, chachaung being an early Silla title.

Namhae is the only king who is called Chachaung. According to the Samguk Sagi, Kim Dae-Mun explained that the title "Chachaung" meant a shaman in Old Korean.

Background[edit]

He was the eldest son of Park Hyeokgeose, Silla's founder, and Lady Aryeong. His surname was Park, and his wife was Lady Unje (운제, 雲帝).

Reign[edit]

His reign was characterised by a series of foreign invasions. In 4, the Nangnang army surrounded Geumseong, the Sillan capital, but was repelled.

The Wa of Japan invaded Silla in 14, and while Silla stopped them, Nangnang invaded again. A comet shower was said to have scared the Nangnang soldiers, however, and they retreated.

He was buried in Sareung-won.
