Korean Empire

a political entity in place from 1897 to 1910 that encompassed the Korean Peninsula and replaced the Choson dynasty, which had ruled the peninsula for five hundred years. Proclaimed by Gojong, the empire was intended to be the start of a sovereign and independent Korea, free of influence from powerful states such as China, Japan, and Russia. Its brief tenure ended with Japan’s annexation of Korea in 1910.
