According to the Samguk Sagi, he excelled at civil affairs. Heongang was the eldest son of King Gyeongmun; his mother was Queen Munui. He had no legitimate heir, but did leave a son (later King Hyogong) by Lady Uimyeong.
In 879, Heongang was faced with the rebellion of a high official, his Ilgilchan Sin Hong. In 886, he sought to defuse domestic discontent with a decree of general forgiveness.
