Author: Yi Huan

Status: Complete, 5 Volumes, 15 Chapters


The story begins during the Sung Dynasty of ancient China. The country is in great chaos due to the infamous Jin Kang Rebellion.

Fearing the possible destruction that is sure to ensue, Concubine Liu tearfully entrusts the care of her baby daughter, Princess Yi Fu, to a common citizen named Tang Hui. Tang Hui immediately escapes with the princess to the south. And so, Princess Yi Fu’s whereabouts becomes a mystery.

Now, ten years later, the Tang has returned to power and the great family wishes to all exiled family members to return. But Zi Li is happy with her life. She knows that returning means giving up her love; for a peasant could never court a princess.

And courtship between a princess and a palace warrior is equally frowned upon. But that does little to quell the fire that burns inside Zhong Lu, a famed warrior charged with the task of finding and restoring the princess to the throne.

  1. if I am not mistaken, this manga is a sequel (forgot the title of the prequel though). the prequel also has interesting story with strong female lead.

    btw, have you read “wedding” manhua? it also has an interesting story with strong female lead. it’s rare to find such character in shoujo genre.


    1. Hi uw_maulida

      Unfortunately I have not read the prequel but if you happen to remember the title of the manhua drop me a comment about it.

      As for “Wedding” I did read the description summary of the manhua but it just didn’t catch my attention but I shall read it when I do have time 🙂 Thanks for the recommendation.


      1. the prequel is called “Proclaiming and Loving”. it’s the story about the family of lead girl from real fake princess.

        if you have time, do read wedding manhua, i think you’ll like the female lead.


      2. Thanks I’ll definitely read it this weekend when I have time. It’ll be nice to read what happen to her mother before she got taken away with Tang Hui 🙂


      3. the lead in the prequel is her aunt but it also depicts how her mother became the concubine n the relationship with tang family.


It only takes a few seconds to make someone smile.
