The Baekje Dynasty (18 BC–660 AD) was one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.
While it was small, Baekje enjoyed some power due to its ties to China. During the Chinese Three Kingdoms period, Baekje actively supported Shu through favorable trade. As a result, Baekje made an enemy of Wei. Cao Cao had plans for a full invasion of Baekje, but ultimately could not spare the men, instead sending mercenaries to disrupt the trade routes. Baekje enjoyed similar trade relationships with later Chinese dynasties.
