Princess Myeongon (Hangul: 명온공주, Hanja: 明溫公主; 1810 - 1832[2]) was a Joseon Dynasty princess, as the eldest daughter of King Sunjo and Queen Sunwon of the Andong Kim clan.


She was born in 1810, as the eldest daughter and second child of Sunjo of Joseon and Queen Sunwon of the Andong Kim clan.

On May 11, 1817, at the age of 8 years old, she was granted the title of Princess Myeongon (명온공주, 明溫公主).[3]

On May 10, 1823, a selection to choose her husband took place nationwide. Only boys between 12 and 15 years old could participate[4] and the winner was Kim Hyeon-geun (김현근), the son of Kim Han-sun (김한순) from the Andong Kim clan. They were married on July 20, that same year, and Kim was granted the title of Prince Consort Dongnyeong (동녕위).[5]

The Princess died at the age of 21, in 1832, after a long struggle with illness.

Her tomb is located in San 84–2, Gyomun-dong, Guri-si, Gyeonggi-do alongside her husband, who died on 1868 (5th year of Emperor Gojong's reign).[6]
