|Crown Princess of Korea |
Empress of Korea (posthumously honored)
|Crown Princess of Korea|
|Born||20 October 1872|
|Died||5 November 1904 (aged 32)|
Sunjong of Korea (m. 1882–1904)
She was born in 1872. She married Sunjong in 1882 and she died on 20 July 1907. She was a witness to her mother-in-law's assassination in 1895, when she stood in front of the Empress, attempting to protect her. This may have contributed to her early death, as she was plagued by severe depression thereafter. She was appointed as empress after her death.
