    Aren't those pics of Medieval/Early Rennaisance Koreans? Say, 15th/16th century?

    They were united back then eh? Cause i heard that they, like the Mongols had to be unified first.

    Sorry for my total lack of knowledge on the Koreans, but they're not mentioned alot.



    One of them reminds me of a Minoan Charioteer.

    “Sweat saves blood, blood saves lives, and brains saves both.” -Johannes Erwin Eugen Rommel.

    "In Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love; they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock."

    I've tried resizing the images, it wouldn't work, probably because I don't know how to do it. Sorry about that. The only suggestion I have is to set the image as your desktop wallpaper, because since your screen is larger than the picture than your computer will probably automatically resize the whole image to fit your screen.

    Most of them are set in the Three Kingdoms Period of Korean history. At least one pic of armor is from the Koryo time period.

    The Kingdom in Korea's medieval period was called Choson. These are the Choson armor.

    More armor:

    Koguryo foot soldier:



    Kaya Federation Plate Armor:



    Kaya Federation Horseman:



    The Kaya Federation was a federation of independent city-states in the Three Kingdoms period (the kingdoms in that time period were Koguryo, Paekchae, Shilla). But they didn't last very long before their stronger neighbors absorbed them into their territory, that's why we didn't call it the Four Kingdroms period.

    More pics to follow I hope.

    The threekingdoms period of Korea (Korguyu, Paekchae and Schilla) was in the European Dark Ages, to put it in perspective.

In view of our divine essence, we need only liberty and work; in view of our mortal nature, we need for our direction a guide and a support. A government is not then, as a distinguished economist has said, a necessary ulcer; it is rather the beneficent motive power of all social organisation.
