Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Shotokukiu of Rakutensai (North Palace) Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea; Seoul Type: Postcards/Ephemera Description: 'Naksonjae' (Mansion of Joy and Goodness), built in 1867 at 'Changdokkung' (Changdok Palace) (Illustrious Virtue) in Seoul. The palace was built in the reign of 'Taejo' (1394), but burned in 1592 and was rebuilt in 1609. It was then used as the royal residence until the reconstruction of the 'Kyongbokkung' (Kyongbok Palace) in 1867. 'Naksonjae' was the private residence of the late Queen 'Yun', wife of the last king, 'Sunjong'. From 1964 to 1970, Prince 'Yi Un', the uncrowned heir to the Korean throne who had spent most of his life in Japan, lived there. The inscription written in Chinese characters shows Nakchonjae (not Naksonjae). Source: Adams, Edward B. Palces of Seoul, 1972, p. 89-92.
