Summary

왕의 행차, 이폴리트 프랑탱(Hippolyte Frandin, 1852~1924). 경기도박물관 소장품

In 1897, King Gojong returned to Gyeongun Palace from his refuge at the Russian consulate, proclaiming the Korean Empire. Faced with increasing pressure from Japan on Korea's sovereignty in the aftermath of the Japanese assassination of Queen Min, Gojong hoped to hold off encroachments by declaring Korea a free and independent Empire. The Korean Empire lasted a short time, from the Gwangmu Restoration of 1897 until Japan's annexation of Korea in 1910.
