Yeongwol is a county in the province of Gangwon-do in South Korea. It is well known as the place where King Danjong, the 6th King of the Joseon Dynasty, was exiled when he was abdicated by his uncle, who later became the 7th King of Joseon. Following the attempts by six martyred ministers to restore him to power, Danjong was then murdered and buried there in 1457, after he was perceived as a continuing threat to the rule of his uncle.
