Queen Seondeok was a member of the Silla Royal Family (one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea). She was crowned as Queen of Shilla from 632 to 647 and was the First reigning Queen in the Korean History. Seondeok's father was King Jinpyeong of Shilla. Having no sons, he selected Seondeok as his heir. It is believed that Seondeok's selection as her father's successor was justified by her displays of precocious intelligence when she was a princess. Queen Seondeok was not only intelligent but was also a capable and dedicated ruler who established the foundation of Silla's unity of the Korean Peninsula. She ruled her kingdom wisely and greatly improved the life of her people. According to legends related to her, Queen Seondeok had great intuition and foresight. She seems to know where the enemies were hiding by natural phenomena which predicted many incidents before it happened, and even knew when she would die and left her will before death. Because she was extraordinary and leads a heroic life, many Korean people make novels, plays, movies, TV series and musicals based on her life story till today. This particular game is dedicated to her and features various costumes and accessories the queen wore during her time.
