Early medieval history

From 698 to 936, the kingdom of Balhae occupied northern Korea and parts of Manchuria and Primorsky Krai, consisting of the Nanai, the Udege, and the Evenks and descendants of the Tungus-speaking people and the people of the recently fallen Goguryeo kingdom of Korea. The vicinity of Tongjiang was settled at this moment by Heishui Mohe tribes (Hangul  Hanja/Hanzi  pinyin : H?ishu? Mòhé). These tribes were submitted to Balhae Kingdom under King Seon's reign (818-830).

King Seon administrated their territories by creating a prefecture in the neighbourhood : The Hoiwon Prefecture (Hangul : Hanja : ) with Dalju (Hangul ? Hanja :) present-day Tongjiang (Hanzi : pinyin :Tóngji?ng), as its administrative centre.

20th century
