Baekje: Polity Style

before 660 Baekje (百濟|백제) [1]
Aug/Sep 660 the polity is annexed to Tang after the surrender of the king of Baekje and the capture of the capital by the armies of Tang and Silla (Samguk Sagi, ch.3, ch. 28) [2]
Nov/Dec 661 Baekje is partially restored after the proclamation of Prince Pungjang (豐璋|풍장) as king at the Japanese court (Oct 661) and his arrival to a temporary capital of Baekje, Juyuseong (Juryuseong), located in liberated territory (Nov/Dec 661) (Nihon Shoki, ch. 27)
13 Oct 663 the restoration movement is suppressed after the capture of Juyuseong by the armies of Tang and Silla (Nihon Shoki, ch. 27)

[1] According to Samguk Sagi, ch. 26, the name of Baekje was changed to Nam Buyeo (南扶餘|남부여) in 538 along with the change in capital, but further appearance of Nam Buyeo in this chronicle and the Samguk Yusa is limited to only a few mentions, and none occur in the Chinese and/or Japanese sources.
[2] The armed resistance to Tang continued in late 660, culminating in a failed attempt to liberate the capital on 1 Nov 660 and military defeat of the Baekje forces on 25 Nov 660 (dates are according to Samguk Sagi, ch. 5).
