She's listed as Queen Dowager Munjeong in the historical records. Her reign as regent saw the revival of Buddhism.
It was because of this that in later years, Buddhist guerilla units were formed to repel the Japanese invasion.
2006 Distant horizons cometh, storms arising, may the guardians of earth and light prevail Born in fire, black to mortal eyes, fiery in soul. Courage, honesty, sincerity and truth prevail. Free in air and on earth. Guardian against dark thoughts and keeper of the light.
Her real name seems to have been Yun Sun, but once anyone becomes queen, her name never gets used. (actually, it's same for almost all women that their names don't ever get used once they grow up and have a family of their own...) 'Munjeong' is her posthumous title.

With respect to other members,
I am not really sure if this is the proper place to post my question, but I have a silly, tedious question to ask regarding the historic Queen Munjeong. I am currently watching “Yeoin Cheonha.” Queen Munjeong takes the stage in this drama as she is one of the main characters. Since DJG was just so popular, most people just know Queen Munjeong through the character portrayed in DJG rather than the character in “Yeoin Cheonha,” which is sort of ironic. Heheheh!
For the members who had already seen “Yeoin Cheonha,” can you please tell me how many daughters she gave birth to? I have read in a few other posts in here stating that she had 5 daughters before giving birth to King Myungjong. However, I believe the series “Yeoin Cheonha” only showed her giving birth to 3 daughters before King Myungjong. I believe historical records clearly stated Queen Munjeong had 4 daughters and 1 son. With this in mind, did I miss an episode or a part in “Yeoin Cheonha” where she had her 4th daughter? For the members who had already seen “Yeoin Cheonha,” can you please confirm how many daughters Queen Munjeong had in this series itself? Can some history buff verify if the historic Queen Munjeong actually gave birth to 4 daughters and 1 son?
Thank you very much! Minh Giao
