ABSTRACT

ChilDaeSilRok(七代實錄) is the records about from King Taejo of Goryeo untill King Mokjong of the 7th Kings. It were destroyed by the invasion of Kitan(契丹) in 1st year of Hyun Jong. Hyunjong began to compile ChilDaeSilRok again in the fourth year of King Hyunjong’s reign. However, the work of compiling ChilDaeSilRok was not carried out perfectly. Therefore, it was not called ChilDaeSilRok but rather ChilDaeSaJuk(七代事跡). Hwang Joo-ryang led the compilation of the book. Therefore, it is said that in Goryeosa(高麗史), ChilDaeSaJuk were compiled by Hwang Joo-ryang. Later on, during the reign of King Deokjong, he began to supplement ChilDaeSaJuk. First of all, He decided to revise and add the original record of the Taejo, TaejoSilrok(太祖實錄). At first, Wanggado was in charge. However, he resigned from office in July of the second year of King Deokjong’s reign. Then Hwang Joo-ryang led the compilation of the book. In the third year of King Deokjong’s reign, the compilation of the annals of King Taejo was completed. The priority was to compile TaejoSilrok(太祖實錄) because it did not have much personal content about the seven kings. It was also due to the deep interest of Hyun-jong and Deok-jong. Because Taejo Wang Geon was the grandfather of Hyeonjong and the great-grandfather of Deokjong. In summary, The annals of the King Taejo, “TaejoSilrok(太祖實錄)”, was compiled from the first year of King Deokjong until July of the third year of King Deokjong. Therefore, it was different from ChilDaeSaJuk(七代事跡) that they published during Hyun-jong. As it was also reflected in the compilation of “ Goryeo history”, The records of King Taejo was relatively much more. In comparison, the record for Hyejong to Mokjong has become extremely little.
