This is a properly remarkable book It is as the subtitle explains The Autobiographical Writings of a Crown Princess of Eighteenth Century Korea Lady Hyegy ng was married into the royal family she married Sado the Crown Prince when they were both nine years old Sado never became king he was executed in 1762 at the age of 27 but their son inherited the throne as King Ch ngjo Remarkably Hyegy ng outlived him as well and three of these four memoirs were written after 1800 during the reign of her grandson King SunjoSo she had a long and eventful life and it makes for fascinating reading It s sometimes a little difficult keeping track of who s who there s a large cast of characters the court intrigues are confusing and the family relationships are complicated by the fact that the kings and princes have children by multiple women some wives some consorts And because I m unused to Korean names they all sound a bit the same to me But it has a list of characters and some family trees which helpedThe other complication is that these are four separate memoirs which overlap with each other So the first The Memoir of 1795 is closest to the modern idea of a memoir starting with her childhood and covering most of her life but it carefully avoids any details about the single most important event the execution of Prince Sado The execution of the crown Prince by his father is so politically charged that she only alludes to it in the vaguest terms Then the memoirs of 1801 and 1802 are directly political public advocacy aimed at defending the reputation of her father and brothers who had fallen out favour after the death of Ch ngjo And in the Memoir of 1805 she finally returns to the story of Sado explaining that 40 years of silence has allowed false versions of events to take hold and she believes it is important to tell what really happenedAnd the story of Prince Sado is extraordinary I don t want to give all the details I m sure I enjoyed this book because I was surprised and shocked by it But the central fact of his execution is this he was suffering from some kind of mental illness and it progressed to the point that he was thought to be a credible threat to the life of the king But because he was royal custom forbade any method of execution that would disfigure the body and poison would have implied he was a criminal so he was shut into a rice chest and left to starve to deathAs you might imagine this event traumatised the entire royal family in various ways hence it being taboo to talk about it for four decades after it happenedBut although it was an extreme example it also gives a hint of the brutality of court life There are an awful lot of people who get banished to remote islands or tortured or executed usually for saying something which is perceived to be disloyal That disloyalty at least at this cultural distance often seems to be based on terrifyingly slight nuances of speechSo I found it fascinating as a portrayal of a time and place and the whole story is positively Shakespearean But it is also much readable than you might expect If you skipped the two middle memoirs it would be a positive page turner not that they aren t interesting but they are harder work The Memoirs of Lady Hyegy ng is my book from South Korea for the Bondi Beach Boys Boys of Summer #1 fils le roi Sunjo Elle en a soixante et onze lorsu’elle les termine Elle tient la chr.
