The name Daehan, which means "great Han" literally, derives from Samhan (Three Hans).
However, the name Joseon was still widely used by Koreans to refer to their country, though it was no longer the official name.
In 936, the Later Three Kingdoms were united by Wang Geon, a descendant of Goguryeo nobility, Balhae had fallen to the Khitan Empire in 926, and a decade later the last crown prince of Balhae fled south to Goryeo, where he was warmly welcomed and included into the ruling family by Wang Geon, thus unifying the two successor nations of Goguryeo.The history of Korea begins with the founding of Joseon (also known as "Gojoseon", or Old Joseon, to differentiate it with the 14th century dynasty) in 2333 BC by Dangun, according to Korea's foundation mythology.Gojoseon expanded until it controlled the northern Korean Peninsula and parts of Manchuria.in the Goryeo–Khitan War, Goryeo experienced a golden age that lasted a century, during which the Tripitaka Koreana was completed and there were great developments in printing and publishing, promoting learning and dispersing knowledge on philosophy, literature, religion, and science; by 1100, there were 12 universities that produced famous scholars and scientists.
However, the Mongol invasions in the 13th century greatly weakened the kingdom.
The new official name has its origin in the ancient country of Gojoseon (Old Joseon).
