Soseong died only nineteen months after taking the throne. This brought on a renewal of the succession strife which typified later Unified Silla.
Soseong of Silla, who was raised in the royal court before he ascended the throne, was given a royal rite in 789, and went to the Tang dynasty in 790. He was appointed to the Si-jung in October 791, but retired due to illness in August the following year. When Uncle Uiyoung died early in 794, he was proclaimed Crown Prince in the year 795.
