But the turbulent times took a heavy toll on Princess Jung Myung. Upon the death of King Seon Jo, Gwang Hae ascended the throne and his first order of business was to eliminate Prince Yeong Chang and banish Queen In Mok from the palace. Then his next target was Princess Jung Myung. When In Mok learned that her daughter’s life was in danger, she sent her into hiding. But assassins tracked Jung Myung down. Through the heroic sacrifice of her bodyguard, Jung Myung was put on a boat that sailed adrift in the sea. Meanwhile, the bodyguard and nanny set their boat ablaze and died to fool the assassins.
