Description:
After six years of pointless war between her country, the Kingdom of Ehas, and their neighbor enemies, the Kingdom of Cukda, aged 20, the woman soldier and former petty officer Pauliana Kellenbell has been defeated and captured in a storming attack by the army of another enemy nation, the Kingdom of Acrea, an attack she had personally predicted but fell on deaf ears by her superiors. She has been desperately trying to survive in men's society, but it was all in vain, her noble birthright having been taken away by her family by being sent to war, and having all her efforts crushed down by the fact that she's a woman in the all-male army of Ehas.

Acrea's young king, Lucius, sees her struggle and potential, and makes an unexpected offer. He dreams of becoming the first emperor to conquer the South continent and its sea. Pauliana swears a life-long allegiance to Lucius for acknowledging her, becoming his knight and most trusted advisor, bestowing her with the name Pauliana Winter. However, in the end, Lucius is just an emperor on the battlefield that had awakened his love for Pauliana!

I have watched enough dramas to know anything is possible, if this guy could unify the lands what makes you think he won't fight to be with the woman he loves, maybe he will be the one to change that. You'd need the Age of Enlightenment for "marrying for love" to happen, which century is this story suppose to take place in, are we near 17 or 18th century hopefully?

I really want Pauliana to marry and find happiness within someone. However I don’t think it should be with Lucius. I hope she falls in love soon🥺

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE MASSIVE UPDATES ❤️❤️❤️

I truly enjoy this, because it's unlike the other webtoons I read. It portrays the medieval times as realistically as common day reader can take. And at the same time, makes you realize and feel the bittersweet, conflicting decisions a person of higher status must experiences.

I know, for sure, people will negatively react why the emperor needs to marry. But if you look at it in a wider lenses, this story path makes utter sense, considering Lucius' disposition, and how marriage is truly a means for strengthening alliance than for love. (thus arranged marriage.)

I REALLY HOPE YOU GUYS DON'T STOP READING THIS :((( IT'S REALLY WORTH THE WAIT AND THE TIME! I READ THE ENGLISH TRANSLATED NOVEL :(

Thank you for the updates.

Now I want spoilers. Please tell me if Paulina becomes happy in the end. That's the only thing I'm here for

I feel like this story really lost its original appeal. Paulina's greatest strength was her knowledge of strategy and warfare. She helped Lucius conquer two countries in the beginning but now it seems her only job is to stand around as a bodyguard.

The Maas update is What I needed. This webtoon always is so entertaining to read, I’m exited to see what the future will bring. Glad Paulina gets a potential love interest(?).

Thanks scanlators 😭❤️🧡❤️

I actually still enjoy the story so much. The plot feel realistic and natural. And it's fun bc it was unpredictable. Yes sometime our protagonist didnt always got what they deserved but that's life.

What's important is the ride and how they gonna grow. It's beautiful right now when miss Paul slowly get in touch with her female peer and her womanhood.

I'm excited for upcomming story.

Thank you for the mass updates ❤️😭
I do agree with the other readers. I’m hoping for Pauliana to end up with a different guy, someone who will not make her life any more complicated and difficult. She really do deserve better. Pairing her up with Lucius I, I’m afraid will hurt her and then she’ll lose her beautiful innocence and purity.

Honestly, I'd like it more if she were to end up with sir Aino. It's not like I'm shipping these two, but they seem much more compatibile than she and Lucius :V

Seriosly, I'd love to see Pauliana end up with a wife or a husband that isn't Lucius at this point.
I love our little emperor, but Pauliana deserves the world after all her hardships in life, and just being happy without all the pressure of a noble/royal life :7

BTW Paulianas new uniform anyone? It's just *chefs kiss*

@sailorpluto247 uhhh he’s an emperor? And he needs an heir that carries his blood and someone with a lot of power. Lucius has no freedom to pick and marry someone just because he’s in love. He has an empire to control. The approach of this webtoon is mildly realistic, not like some disney princess story. It’s a marriage of convenience, not the same marriage that common people have

This is my selfish wish but I really wanted Miss Paul to end up with some cute boy instead, maybe someone of lower status, commoner or even a slave she buys. Someone who would take the role of the wife while she could work and make a living as the husband.

Around what chapter is the story at in the novel? I would like to read ahead
Avatar
I really want Paulie to just be gay at this point. She wanted a wife so bad some chapters back and I just think it would suit the story. Thank u tho for the mass update 😭

Ps anyone know where to read the novel?
Avatar
I'd actually be ok if they don't end together, story has been interesting and I like both characters a lot. Paulie isn't some lovestruck bonehead, doesn't have the same bittersweet vibes some stories have
