The empress Jingû
She promptly crossed the waves and subjugated everyone
The three Korean states became a province, the sea a canal.
Once this virile country was praised for its army without enemies,
I am moved by memories and my tears richly flow.
(HK)

According to the Nihon shoki, the empress Jingū (169-269) and her armies successfully invaded Korea.
