Goryeo Dynasty

In Korea, the Goryeo Dynasty (고려; 高麗; 918-1392), also the Wang Dynasty, followed Silla and preceded the Joseon Dynasty. The founder was Taejo (태조; 太祖) (Wang Geon (왕건; 王__)). The last ruler is Gongyang Wang (공양왕; 恭讓王).

The first twenty-four rulers, except Taejo, have their temple names ending in jong (宗). However, after 1274, the last 9 rulers' titles end in Wang (王).
