What is happening in Korea in 1215CE

The unified Korean state of Koryo enjoyed a long period of stability, ruled by a king with the support of a powerful aristocracy. The low status of military commanders, however, eventually boiled over in a mutiny in 1170. A large number of officials were massacred and military leaders seized control of the state.
