Daru of Baekje (?-77, r. 28–77) was the second king of Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.



He was the eldest son of the founding monarch Onjo and became the heir of throne in the year 10. He became king upon Onjo's death.


According to Samguk Sagi, he ordered the cultivation of land to the south, and banned the fermentation of alcohol in 38 because of a poor harvest.

The Samguk Sagi records many battles against the "Malgal" during Daru's reign. It is unclear who this refers to, as the Mohe tribes are thought to have occupied Manchuria northwest of the northern Korean kingdom Goguryeo, far from Baekje's capital (generally presumed to have been in the present-day Seoul region). The "Malgal" do not appear to refer to the Buyeo people that founded Baekje, nor to the Mahan confederacy tribes subjugated by Baekje. They appear to have remained from the earlier period, incited by Chinese commanderies to attack Baekje. The battles indicate that Baekje as a new power was still expanding its control of the central Korean Peninsula.

He won a battle against the Malgal in 30-31. When the Malgal attacked the northern border in 55, he built Castle Ugok (우곡성/牛谷城) in 56.

In 63, he is said to have sent an emissary to the rival Korean state Silla. In 64, he attacked Silla at Castle Jusan, but was defeated at Castle Guyang. In 66, he attacked and captured Silla's Castle Wasan (와산성/蛙山城). He briefly captured Jusan in 66 and 75, but Silla won them back.
