ABSTRACT

The positions of Chugyeokcheo (a place which the Joseon Forces pursued enemies, Nüzhen) and Yogyeokcheo (a place which the Joseon Forces ambushed and defeated enemies), which were operated under the JeSeungBangRyak, were in the North Gando Area, north of the Tumen River (Jeseungbangryak was a military system at the Tumen, Hamgil (Hamgyeong) Province in Joseon Dynasty). It means that Joseon's view of territory was continent-oriented and not limited to the Korean Peninsula. Besides, it was related to the Northeast Nine Castles which were constructed by general Yoon Guan in Goryeo Dynasty(1107~1108). After General Yoon defeated Nüzhen who resided in the Tumen and North Gando, at that time he constructed the Nine Castles there. There have been various opinions about the area of Nine Castles. Under the colony-centered historical view, many experts have said that those castles were around the Hamheung plain. Recently, however, the theories which are explaining that the locations of Castles were around North Gando including Jilinsheng wangqingxian in China.  I already have asserted that Castles of Gongheomjin which was located in the most northest Castle was constructed at Chunyangzhen, Jilinsheng wangqingxian in China. Much to my entertainment, the area of Nine Castles and Chugyeokcheo ⋅Yogyeokcheo were alike. This fact is saying that the territory of Korea included f North Gando and is not limited at the Korean Peninsula. This thesis will make clear that the position of Chugyeokcheo and Yogyeokcheo was north of the Tumen, North Gando. From that thesis, I will examine Korea's magnificent view of territory and present the blueprint for Korea from the point of domain history.
