ABSTRACT

The Battle of Anshi Castle has been talked about by many as an event that represents Korean history. Therefore, This paper reviewed two problems about Anshi Castle, the perception of the Goryeo period about the position of Anshi Castle and the rumor of the eye injury of Tang Taizong. The Battle of Anshi Castle is recorded in Chinese documents such as ZhenGuanzhengyao(􋺷貞觀政要􋺸), Tongdian(􋺷通典􋺸) and ZizhiTongjian(􋺷資治通鑑􋺸). In the ZhenGuanzhengyao, the Ansi Castle was said to be in the Liaodong. In the Tongdian, there is Anshi on the south side of Daliaoshui(大遼水). By doing so, the people of Goryeo would have recognized that Anshi Castle was in the eastern part of Liaohe(遼河). In the late Goryeo period Lee saek, Jeong mongju, and Lee sungin traveled through the Liaodong region to reminisce about the Battle of Anshi Castle. They understood that Anshi Castle was in Gaizhou(蓋州) of Liaodong region. Liaoshi and Jinshi compiled from the Yuan Dynasty, Yuanshi compiled from the Ming Dynasty recorded that Anshi Castle was in Gaizhou. However Anshi Castle, which was recognized as in the Liaodong until the Goryeo Dynasty, was officially recorded as Yonggang-Hyun by the ShinjungDonggukRyujiSeunglam. As a result this later led to confusion in Anshi Castle's location. On the other hand, the rumor of the eye injury of Tang Taizong is handed down as a representative memory of the battle of Anshi Castle. However, many librarians have recorded that Taizong leaved Liaodong and suffered from a boil after arriving in Dingzhou. Therefore, the rumor of the eye injury of Taizong is a misinterpretation of the fact that Taizong's disease. In the relationship between Goryeo and Mongol·Yuan, the battle of Anshi Castle was reinterpreted as a historical case of emphasizing the strength and independence of Goryeo. In response Lee saek, Jeong mongju, and Lee sungin pay attention the Battle of Anshi Castle as a historical event. This came from a historical recognition that Goryeo succeeded Goguryeo.
