  Genealogy of Joseon Monarchs - New World Encyclopedia
Monarchs in the Joseon Dynasty of Korea are descended from Emperor Taejo of the Jeonju Lee lineage.
Taejo was posthumeously given the title Emperor by Emperor Gojong in recognition of his contribution as founder of the Dynasty.
Gojong's course was further compromised by having ascended to the throne at a young age, which meant he did not rule directly; his father, Daewongun, controlled the throne during the early part of Gojong's reign, and later his wife, Queen Min, and her clan gained much of the control.
