 King Gojong of Goryeo   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Gojong's reign was marked by prolonged conflict with the Mongol Empire, which sought to conquer Goryeo, ending only when the kingdom was finally surrendered in 1259.
Gojong resisted the Mongol invasion for nearly thirty years before the kingdom was forced to surrender to the Mongols in 1259; Gojong died soon after.
The work was perhaps motivated by Gojong's hopes to change fortunes through the act of religious devotion; however the originals were later destroyed by the Mongols — the existing Tripitaka is a replica of Gojong's original, and was commissioned around one hundred years after the originals were lost.
