A Study on the Root of Koubetu Hwayi(Wani)-uji in 『Shinsensyoujiroku』
The purpose of this study is to examine the corrective root of Wani-uji(和邇氏), who was classified as a clan of koubetsu(皇別) in 『Shinsensyou-ziroku(新撰姓氏錄)』.
Most of all, the commonality between Wani-uji(和邇氏) and Wangin(王仁Wani) dispatched from Baekje(百濟), and his relatives has been widely verified. Wani-uji(和邇氏) and Wangin(王仁Wani) bring a question of being the same person.
First, this study has been conducted to check commonality of two sides and verify this.
As a result, we were able to identify three things.
That is, (1) There is a complete correspondence between the two sides in the Chinese character notation(和邇) and the Japanese basic notation(Wani), (2) accordance in the areas of residence, local activity and in the territory, and (3)Common in the field of tasks and activities.
Secondly, in order to verify Hwayi (Wani)-uji, reviewed its ancestors and clans from the same roots; Mano-uji(眞野氏) and Kabane(姓) of Ono-uji(小野氏).
As a result, the following three things can be found : (1) The person who claimed to be Hwayi (Wani)-uji's ancestor does not have any credibility in its historicity and reality, and (2) Ono's kabane (姓) is unsuitable for clan of Koubetsu. and (3)Mano-uji(眞野氏) confirmed that he is related to Dami-uji(民氏) from Baekje.
Therefore, I confirmed from these points that Wani-uji(和邇氏) came from the Korean Peninsula, not from its native clan.
Third, to identify Wani-uji(和邇氏)'s more specific roots, we have examined Koshi-uji(高志氏)(descendants of Wani). As a result, it was confirmed that Koshi-uji(高志氏) is related to Wani-uji(和邇氏).
Wani-uji(和邇氏)[Hwayi (Wani)-uji] has confirmed that its root is a clan originally from the Korean Peninsula, especially Baekje.
After all, the Wangin(王仁, Wani) and Wani-uji(和邇氏) are related, therefore, Wangin(Wani) and Wani-uji(和邇氏) are the same entity, and Wani-uji(和邇氏) is definitely related to the Wangin(王仁, Wani) crossing over from Baekje.
Finally, we reviewed the background and reason why Hwa-yi (Wani) had her roots changed.
It is also true that Wani-uji(和邇氏) was the maternal line of Tennoke(天皇家) for a long times, and the route has been changed from the Toraikei(渡來系) to the clan of Koubetsu(皇別) to increase the value of their royal line.
