Jurchen people


The Jurchens were a Tungusic people who lived in Manchuria in present-day Northeast China.[1] They were known as Jurchens until the 17th century when they became known as the Manchu.

The Jurchens established the Jin Dynasty.[2]

The Joseon Dynasty of Korea placed great value on a policy of "neighborly relations" (gyorin or kyorin) with the Jurchen people.[3]
