'''Chungseon of Goryeo''' (20 October 1275 – 23 June 1325) (r. 1298 and 1308–1313) was the 26th king of the Goryeo+ dynasty of Korea+. He is sometimes known by his Mongolian+ name, '''Ijirbuga'''(益知禮普花). Adept at calligraphy and painting, rather than politics, he generally preferred the life of the Yuan+ capital Beijing+ to that of the Goryeo capital Kaesong+. He was the eldest son of King Chungnyeol+; his mother was a Yuan royal, Princess Gyeguk+ , a daughter of Khublai Khan+ also known by her Mongolian name/title '''Khutugh beki'''.
In 1277, Chungseon was confirmed as Crown Prince; in the following year he travelled to China and received his Mongolian name.
According to the above, He got a Mongolian name at hist birth time.
In 1296, he was married to the Yuan Princess Botapsillin+. However, the king already had three Korean wives, the daughters of the powerful nobles Jo In-gyu+, Hong Mun-gye+, and Seo Won-hu+.
Chungseon's mother died in 1297, and this was followed by a violent purge brought on by allegations that she had been murdered. Perhaps upset by these evens, King Chungnyeol petitioned Yuan to abdicate the throne, and was accordingly replaced by Chungseon in 1298. However, faced with intense plotting between the faction of his Mongolian queen and his Korean queen+, Chungseon returned the throne to his father shortly thereafter.
