  Three Kingdoms of Korea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Three Kingdoms of Korea were Goguryeo, Baekje and Silla, which dominated the Korean peninsula and parts of Manchuria for much of the 1st millennium CE.
The Three Kingdoms period in Korea is usually considered to run from the 1st century BCE until Silla's triumph over Goguryeo in 668, which marked the beginning of the North and South States period (남북국시대) of Unified Silla in the South and Balhae in the North.
In the 4th century, Buddhism was introduced to the peninsula and spread rapidly, briefly becoming the official religion of all three kingdoms.

The Three Kingdoms period (Simplified Chinese: 三国; Traditional Chinese: 三國; Pinyin: Sānguó) is a period in the history of China, part of an era of disunity called the Six Dynasties.
The term "Three Kingdoms" itself is somewhat of a mistranslation, since each state was eventually headed by an Emperor who claimed legitimate succession from the Han Dynasty, not by kings.

 Three Kingdoms Era   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Historical records, such as the Samguk Sagi (History of the Three Kingdoms, written during the 12th century) and the Sui China Chronicles, indicate that the various kings of Paekche patronized the martial arts of Taekkyon and ssirum (a traditional Korean style of belt wrestling that only uses throws, not strikes).
Descriptions in documents from the Three Kingdoms Era, such as the Samguk Yusa, the oldest document of Korean history, show that during this era, Subak remained primarily a sport and recreational activity designed to improve physical fitness (although it was nonetheless still a formidable system of self-defense).
In the kingdom of Paekche, the military officers wore different colored belts to indicate their rank, and in Silla, they wore colored trim on their lapels as an additional indication of rank.

Although all three ruling houses were related and periodically intermarried, their squabbles over miniscule territorial gains or ritual slights repeatedly led to warfare.
The three kingdoms lived a charmed life--isolated, independent, and quarreling in their mountain valley--as the systems around them became larger and more centralized.
In the west and the south of the three kingdoms, there were many petty states ruled by dynasties of warrior (Kshatriya) status, many claiming an origin among princely, or Rajput, dynasties to the south.

These are the same two suggested by Linnaeus, and retained by esoteric systems of thought, such as Theosophy and Anthroposophy, and unified science and metaphysics paradigms like those of Arthur Young and Edward Haskell, all of whom added inanimate (e.g.
The progress of scientific knowledge has meant the increasing divergence of science from metaphysics, and in 1959 R. Whittaker replaced the unwieldy dichotomy of plant and animal kingdoms: animals, plants, Fungi, protista or protoctista, and Monera (bacteria and blue-green algae, with only a very simple, prokaryote, cellular structure).
Thus the diversity of life is seen to be far more complex than was envisaged, and familiar organisms like animals and plants are just a tiny proportion of all of the many different forms.

Romance of The Three Kingdoms is one of the great chinese classics and is compiled into a semi-fictional literary masterpiece during the Ming Dynasty by Luo Guanzhong.

The Koguryo Kingdom (37B.C.-A.D.668) was the first of the Korean kingdoms to be exposed to Chinese Han culture.
The excavations disclosed that the temples were built in a Koguryo style known as "three Halls-one Pagoda," with each hall in the east, west and north, and an entrance gate in the south.
Each pagoda and hall appear to have been surrounded by covered corridors, giving the appearance of three separate temples of a style called "one Hall-one Pagoda." The pagoda at the center was found to have been made of wood, while the other two were made of stone.

 Romance of the Three Kingdoms IX for PlayStation 2 Review - PlayStation 2 Romance of the Three Kingdoms IX Review
The ancient text Romance of the Three Kingdoms details the period of military and political turmoil that befell Ancient China in the second and third centuries AD, which occurred after the fall of the Han Dynasty.
The game, as you might imagine, is based on this same period and casts you in the role of an aspiring ruler who's attempting to quell opposing factions so that he or she can ultimately unify the warring states of China (under one banner, of course).
If all of this sounds a little abstract, well, it is. The gameplay in Romance IX (as in the whole series) mostly consists of managing lots of numbers and maps, which are populated by little squares that represent your territory and that of your enemies.

 Romance of the Three Kingdoms X > Review
I remember the original Romance of the Three Kingdoms, or at least the first one I can recall appearing on American soil.
Now in its 10th outing, Romance of the Three Kingdoms has changed greatly since the NES era; no longer a pure stat-and-resource game, it is now impossible to “run the table” like that, since the game is far more story-laden and far more complex, almost reaching toward RPG-ish aspirations.
