Chungnyeol of Goryeo
Hangul 충렬왕
Hanja 忠烈王
Revised Romanization Chungnyeol-wang
McCune–Reischauer Ch'ungnyǒl-wang

Chungnyeol of Goryeo (1236 – 1308, r. 1274-1308) was the 25th ruler of the medieval Korean kingdom of Goryeo. He was the son of Wonjong, his predecessor on the throne.

Chungnyeol was the first Goryeo ruler to be remembered by the title wang (王), meaning "king". Previous rulers had received temple names with the suffix jo (祖) or jong (宗), meaning "revered ancestor" and a title typically reserved for emperors. After Goryeo became a vassal of the Mongol-founded Yuan Dynasty, Yuan emperor Kublai Khan found this threatening and ordered that the Goryeo rulers could not receive such names henceforth.

King Chungnyeol, as Crown Prince Sim, proposed to marry a daughter of Kublai Khan. Kublai Khan agreed and for more than 80 years, Goryeo kings married members of Mongol royalty. Heirs to the throne were given Mongol names and were sent to Dadu where they were raised until they reached adulthood.
