Abstract: Lelang Prefecture(郡)was one of the four prefectures in northern part of the Korean peninsula set up by Emperor Wu of Han Dynasty. In later years of Western Han Dynasty, the Lelang Prefecture became the larger prefecture in that region. In Eastern Han Dynasty, many officials claimed the Prefecture as the boundary, and it was then taken to refer to the four prefectures in the Eastern end territory of China by the people of that time. During Wei Dynasty Gongsun Yuan(公孙渊)was conferred by the Emperor with the Duke of Lelang, and then he was entitled both as the head of the local administrative units(Prefect of Lelang) and the owner of the feudal lands(Duke of Lelang). It remained symbolizing the Eastern end territory until Jin Dynasty. The governments of many later dynasties, including Eastern Jin, Southern Dynasties, Yen Dynasties(诸燕)and North Wei, still all kept official positions of the local administrative units or the feudal lands in the region of Lelang. North Qi merged Lelang, and even though the Duke of Lelang was conferred to the King of Silla by Sui and Tang Dynasties, but Lelang had not yet become one of the counties or prefectures in their territories. Lelang finally had only symbolized the image of the Eastern end territory of China from Han Dynasty to Jin Dynasty.
