History of the Object
This document posthumously certifies Lee Jung-ro as a meritorious subject. Lee Jung-ro (1577-1624) was a descendant of Lee Ji-ran, who played an important role in the founding of the Joseon Dynasty. Lee Jung-ro, together with Lee Seong-bu, died at Matan near the upper reaches of the Yeseong River, during the insurrection of Yi Gwal . Lee, at the age of 16, passed the military service examination. In 1623 he was engaged in a coup attempt to depose Gwanghaegun in favor of his nephew, who became King Injo in 1623. Lee was honored with a title, Cheongheunggun, in recognition of his role in the successful coup.
