Definition

The Unified Silla Kingdom (668- 935 CE) was the first dynasty to rule over the whole of the Korean peninsula. After centuries of battles with the other states of the Three Kingdoms Period (57 BCE - 668 CE) Silla benefitted from the help of the Chinese Tang Dynasty to finally defeat its rivals and form a unified Korean state. In the following century, the kingdom would flourish and produce some of the finest art and architecture yet seen in ancient Korea. In the 10th century CE Silla fell to the resurgent northern kingdom, now known as Goryeo, which would rule until 1392 CE.
