Publisher Description

* The Deoksugung Palace is the smallest palace among the five palaces of Joseon Dynasty. Yet, it is a place that remembers the most turbulent history of Joseon. In modern times of Joseon when the greed of Japan and the veiled enmity among foreign embassies reached a boiling point, Emperor Gojong endured the sorrow of losing his wife and his poisoning attempted by the Japanese officials, and had to silently bear the humiliation of having to take refuge at the Russian legation. The book unfolds the behind stories of the beautiful stone wall at the Deoksugung Palace where the Joseon Dynasty ended and the history of the Korean Empire began.
