Seonjeongneung

Local name삼릉공원 / 서울 선릉과 정릉
LocationGangnam District, Seoul, South Korea

The Seonjeongneung is the burial grounds of two Joseon Dynasty kings and one Joseon queen. The westernmost tomb belongs to King Seongjong, the ninth king of the Joseon dynasty. His first wife, Queen Han, died at age 18 and is buried near Munsan, north of Seoul.

His second wife, Queen Jeonghyeon, from the Yun family, is buried here because she gave birth to the king's second son in 1506.

Queen Jeonghyeon outlived her husband by 35 years and was buried in a splendid tomb to the east of her husband. Her grave has a stone fence encircling the mound, whereas her husband's tomb, on the left, has a retaining wall as well.
