Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Silla led by Seondeok is a custom civilization mod by DuskJockey, with contributions from Arilasqueto, Alga and DarthKyofu.

This mod requires the Korea civilization pack, Gods and Kings and Brave New World.



The Silla kingdom ruled south-eastern Korea during the Three Kingdoms period from the 1st century BC to 7th century AD. Their capital at Seorabeol possessed a centralised government and hierarchical system of social ranks. The prosperity of Silla is evident in the magnificent gold crowns which are among the most prized art objects of ancient South-East Asia. The Silla were in constant rivalry with their neighbours the Baekje and Goguryeo kingdoms, as well as the contemporary Gaya confederation. An alliance with the Tang Dynasty of China permitted Silla to eventually conquer the whole of the Korean peninsula in 668 AD, which it then ruled for the next three centuries as the Unified Silla Kingdom.


It is no easy feat to claim the throne, even during times of peace. In the ancient Korean kingdom of Silla, it wasn't unheard of for women to hold positions of power, but Seondeok became the first woman to rule over the kingdom as queen. Her fifteen-year reign saw a prolific, highly accomplished sovereign who paved the way for other women to rule the kingdom—including her cousin, Jindeok.

Dawn of Man[]

"The stars reveal good omens for you and your people, Queen Seondeok of Silla. With farsightedness and peerless acumen you led your people through the turbulent times that consumed the Korean peninsula during the 6th century AD. As Silla's first-ever queen regnant, you would ensure the her eventual preeminence as the ruler of the land of the morning calm through an alliance with the Tang dynasty. You would also promote an efflorescence of art, learning, and religion, patronizing the construction of many temples and pagodas, as well as that of Cheomseongdae, the tower of the moon and stars, the oldest observatory in the Orient.

Most astute Queen, the alliances you established have faded from memory, and Silla's people starve for want of wisdom. They require a strong, perspicacious leader who will speak unto them the words of blessing written in the heavens. Can you be for Silla this queen once more? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I, Seondeok of Silla, acknowledge you. Our meeting was foreseen."

Defeat: "I foresaw my own end, but not that Silla would share my fate."
