The political situation of the early king Suk-jong[肅宗] period was the instability for the king Suk-jong usually come down with a disease and his successor was not born. The king Suk-jong relied very much on the Royal family and the maternal relative for the purpose of the royal authority strengthening. But their friendly relationship didn't hold long. As the committing adultery with a court lady by the Royal family[宗親] occurred, Queen Myung Sung[明聖王后] criticized the Royal family. The Royal family and the maternal relative were having a feud. King Suk-jong health deteriorated rapidly, He intended the buildup of the royal authority by entrusting the maternal relative with the general headquarters[都體察使府]. The political upheaval in 1680[庚申換局] occurred by Kim Suk-ju[金錫胄]. He ferreted out that Bok-son prince[福善君] and Her-keon[許堅] brew up a plot of treason. Therefore we plainly deem that the political upheaval in 1680[庚申換局] is not only a party strife by factions but also a plot of treason by the Royal family[宗親].
