  • October 9 : With the document Hunminjeongeum ( The right sounds for instructing the people ), King Sejong of the Joseon Dynasty introduces the Korean alphabet Hangeul into Korea after around ten years of development . In his foreword he writes: The spoken language of our country is different from that of China and does not match the Chinese characters either. That is why there are many uneducated people who would like to write something down, but cannot express their feelings in writing. I was very shocked by this fact, and so I invented 28 new letters. Everyone should learn these letters for their convenience and apply them in daily life. The possible variations of the 28 letters are endless. They are simple but useful. They are refined, but understandable everywhere. Therefore, a wise person will understand them before tomorrow is over. A stupid person can learn it in ten days.
  • The law faculty at the University of Leipzig is founded.
