King Guisin of Baekje
|King Guisin of Baekje|
The traditional dates of King Guisin's rule are based on the Samguk Sagi. On the basis of more contemporaneous Chinese records, Best (1979) has suggested that the years 414-429 or 430 are more plausible.
In 420, the new Song dynasty of China sent envoys to Baekje and many other states, re-confirming or enhancing the titles granted by the fallen Eastern Jin. They gave King Guisin the title "Great General Stabilizing the East." In 424, King Guisin replied with a tribute mission to the Song court. In 425, Song sent a mission praising his loyalty. He sent tribute missions every year thereafter. These ties with Song may have been intended to counterbalance Goguryeo’s ties with the Northern dynasties in this period.
