Hey Cyrus Just in case you didn't get my PM...

I just wanted you to know that you got the Japanese titles confused

Tenno=Emperor
Shogun
Daimyo
Samurai
Ashigaru =Royal guard

it goes from bottom to top.  You put it backwards...notice that although I am an emperor My rank is an Ashigaru.

Well there's a theory that's gaining a lot of speed. Basically it says that Dangun lived for  thousounds +or- a few thousand years.  Some scholars are suggesting that Dangun was actually a title rather than one king.  That's basically how me and I/eye came up with that.

They're the Gimhae Kim clan.  They were founded by King Suro of Geumgang Gaya who was born from a golden egg wrapped in purple cloth.  How's that?

Hmmm...Dangun Wanggeom is actually the name and the title of the first king of old Choson.  It's like saying Emperor Fredrich I rather than just Emperor ....

Same with Isageum.  Geum is the syntax that gives the letter the meaning, king.

(BTW, Geum is pronounced as "gum" as in the commercial rubber trash people chews on.  )

Grrr..

Taken from A New History of Korea By Ki-baik Lee

Pg 14, "Its (Gojoseon's) early leaders seem to have borne the title tan'gun wanggom (Dangun Wanggeom), and it is thought likely that they combined political and religious functions in a single person."

Isageum is means, "Successor Prince" and is not pronounced Gum.  It is pronounced the same way the Hanja for Gold is pronounced in Korea, not Gim, the other one.

Plus the title for AE isn't Isageum anymore.  It's been changed to Maripgan.
