ⓘ Ryu clan of Munhwa

The Munhwa Ryu of Korea is one of the great aristocratic houses of Goryeo and Joseon dynasty. "Munhwa" is the name of the clan seat, a township in modern-day Sinchon County, Hwanghae province, North Korea. The surname "Ryoo" comes from the character meaning willow tree. Hence, the lineage is also called "willow Ryoo".

In the early tenth century AD the clans progenitor Ryoo Cha-dal 류차달; 柳車達 was instrumental in defeating subversive forces and reuniting the kingdom under a new regime, the Goryeo dynasty 고려왕조918-1392. For his loyalty and service King Taejo rewarded Ryoo with estates and the title "helper in great victory" 대승공; 大丞公.

Until recently, it was thought that the Cha clan 차; 車 shared the same lineage as the Munhwa Ryoo clan. However, historians have proven that this was in fact an error.

There are around 300.000 individuals in the clan. The clan is further divided into many smaller branches that were founded by people of Korean historical significance.
