ABSTRACT

Queen Woo in Koguryeo dynasty maintained the position of queen for 2 generation and passed away as queen as well. Since description of Samguksagi and Koguyu boni possess historical record as well as aspect of narration, this thesis analyses Queen Woo as the case of characteristical leadership by viewing the story of Queen Woo as one of the narrative text. Queen Woo had always taken the lead in relationship with others by flexible and nimble manner in accordance with situation in reaching her own goal of maintenance of power, monopoly of love and self-regulated life. And she was able to develop independency internally through clear self recognition. This effort on self-reliance became a cornerstone of leadership of queen Woo. Evaluation against queen Woo by later generation was pretty negative. However, a series of preposterous actions can be interpreted by viewpoint of independent doer as challenge of destiny and given circumstances. Moreover, in consideration of the fact that leadership based on mother's instinctive love were frequently sampled as women leadership, this story is regarded as the case of external extension of women leadership. On the other hand, there is limitation of her leadership in proposing value for community.
