Barhae / Parhae (Jin) (Korea)
AD 698 - 926

A Korean state which was founded in the very late seventh century AD.

This was a Korean state which occupied territory in what is now Korea, Manchuria, and Russia during the Unified Silla period. The name Jin was used by the state's own leaders to describe it, but the Chinese name of Barhae (or Parhae in early twentieth century translations, and Bohai in Mandarin) is the one that seems to have stuck in most English-language representations.

The rulers of Jin used the title of hwangje, which translates as 'emperor'. They claimed succession from the kingdom of Koguryo. Each emperor had the temple name either of '-jo' or '-jong', although there are exceptions for rulers who were deposed. Their era names are given in brackets when available.
