In 37 BC, Jumong had fled from Dongbuyeo to avoid death at the hands of Dongbuyeo's Crown Prince Daeso, who presented great jealousy towards Jumong.[3] After he fled, Jumong established a new kingdom in 37 BC called Goguryeo in the Jolbon region. In Jolbon, he married Soseono (or So Seo-no), who was the daughter of a local tribal leader.[4]

Jolbon was the first capital city of the ancient Korean Kingdom of Goguryeo from 37 BC – 3 AD. [5] The second ruler, the son of Jumong, Yuri, moved its capital to Gungnae Fortress.[6]
