Categories: Korean History | Korea

Period: 1897–1910 The Great Korean Empire (Korean: 대한제국) was proclaimed in October 1897 by Emperor Gojong of the Joseon dynasty, under pressure after the Donghak Peasant Revolution of 1894 to 1895 and the Gabo Reforms that swept the country from 1894 to 1896.

From 1905 onward, Korea became a protectorate of Japan, and in August 1910 the Korean Peninsula was annexed outright by Japan, bringing the Korean Empire and its monarchy to an end and beginning 35 years of Japanese colonial rule in Korea.
