The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The Di daughter of military lineage – pure, amiable, quiet and yielding – foolishly in love with Prince Ding, threw herself into the role of a wife.

After assisting him for six years, she finally became the mother to the world (empress), and he the emperor.

She accompanied him to fight for the country, to flourish the country’s territory, and even took risk to be a hostage in a foreign country. Yet, after returning five years later, there was no place to fit in the Inner Palace.

The beauty in his arms smiled brightly, “Older sister, the country is stabilized and you should retire.”

Her daughter had met with a violent death and the Crown Prince, her son, was disposed. Not one of the Shen family members – who had sacrificed themselves for the country – were lucky enough to escape. In one dynasty, everything was overturned: her clan had perished and she needed to mourn for her children!

Shen Miao never did thought that as a married couple who went through trials and tribulations and mutually assisted one another was just a stage joke to him!

He said, “Seeing that you have followed Zhen for twenty years, Zhen will grant you with an intact corpse. You should be grateful this great act of kindness.”

Under the three Chi of white silk, Shen Miao made a malicious vow: In the time to come, she will take part in each and everyone’s end!

Upon rebirth, she returned to the time when she was fourteen, where the tragedy had yet to occur: her family were still alive and she was still the pure, amiable, quiet and yielding Di daughter of military lineage.

Her relatives had all been hiding their black hearts. Her female cousins are ruthless and malicious, her new Yiniang is like a tiger watching its prey, and the disreputable man is wanting to repeat of events.

Her family must be protected, the huge enmity must be avenged, the Imperial seat of the country must also be part of the trophy. In this lifetime, let’s see who can beat the others!

But that little marquis from the Xie family, the arrogant and obstinate spear carrying youth, stood biasedly at her side and proudly said, “It is only the measly fall of the Imperial power. Remember this, the world belongs to you. You– Belong to me!”

Di – legitimate/offspring of the first wife

Zhen – the term an emperor uses to refer to himself

Yiniang – stepmother

Chi – 1/3 of a meter

Kudos to luckychaams! This story with its long title that I can't even remember is also now my all-time favorite! Just a day ago, I had declared Chu Wang Fei my all-time favorite, and I picked this up as a recommendation from CWF, and overnight this one has now suddenly taken the lead. I stayed up until 8 am reading all the translations in one sitting...

The transmigration premise is slightly different from the more mainstream ones. This time, a woman dies in her 30s and goes back in time to... more>> fix her life to prevent her marriage to the person who completely ruins her life either personally or indirectly as a result of the people who want his favor. In her first life, she thought she was in love with him, but at her deathbed I guess she severed all these feelings... not sure yet because in the English translations we have yet to see her interact with that character personally and who knows she might still have lingering tender feelings for the asshole (THOUGH I REALLY HOPE NOT).

So the character goes back in time with all the knowledge about the two-faced people that she didn't know about in her first life until too late. The beginning of the story that lays out the background of her tragic end felt a little bit heavy-handed, but it ended up helping us really make sense out of the endless wrath that she carries in her second chance and you really don't feel overwhelmed by her merciless dealings. She is out for blood, but in a patient, abiding way...

This actually reminds me a lot of the Hunger Games. They both have some settings where the main character is like "on stage" and performing in front of a larger audience. And they both have this sort of noble lone girl resisting against the evil greater rulers and astonishing heaven and earth... And finally, the way she gets to perform and come out on top as the underdog. It honestly feels really good. This sort of "coming out on top" is way better than the OP'd characters in Stunning Edge of Genius Doctor. This one is actually a good story. Of course, our character also has her sense of OP-ness...


given that she unexpectedly inherits all of her skills and knowledge from her previous life (word for word, without practice, without muscle building? really?)


but at least it's not completely ridiculous. At least in my case, I was truly not certain about which things she would win at and at which things she would lose...

As for the romance; it develops very slowly, but it's there! It's just well entwined in a larger, exciting plot. In any case, when I read romances I also appeciate if the characters are good and if the plot is good, and in this case, all of these things are here. I think that the romance in this story might defeat the one in my beloved Chu Wang Fei... I thought Chu Fei Yang was a good male lead, but this guy actually gives him a run for his money. This story's protagonists are a smidge younger than in CWF, but they actually interact a little bit more. It feels a little more natural, watching how they might end up falling for each other...

I also think this transmigration (really it's more of a time-travel) story is my favorite because it is just clearly better written. It's a really good translation too. The translated prose is fine and the elegant, the punctuating, key phrases are harrowing and succinct.

Highly. Recommend. It feels like a short read but it took my like 9 hours so it is a nice escape. <<less

Yes so far is a good one. Much have been said already. I will only add that I like that the MC use strategy, not god like martial arts or medicine like other transmigration novels. I love how things are developing between de MC and ML, and I love how she sometimes is on the verge of forgetting she is not anymore the empress of her past life, like calling "impudent" a certain someone. And for once the MC ruthless made sense with her past life.

This is hands down the best "transmigration/relive past" story I've read. And trust me, I've read a few. Top of the list:

    1. THIS ONE!!
    2. Chu Wang Fei
    3. Princess Wei Yang
    4. Genius Doctor
    5. Evil Emperor's Wild Consort
    6. King of Hell's pampered wife
    7. Enchantress Among Alchemists
    8. Common sense of a duke's daughter
    9. Space and rebirth
    10. Bewitching prince spoils his wife
    11. The Captivating crown prince
    12. Poison genius consort
    13. Princess Medical Doctor
    14. Xian Wang Dotes on wife
    15. Insanely pampered wife
    16. The general's little pampered wife
    17. Assassin farmer
    18. Chongfei manual
    19. Mei gongqing
    20. Cry of the pheonix
    21. Legend of concubine's daughter minglan
    22. Wolf lord's lady
    23. Into the world of medicine
    24. Picking up a general to plow the fields
    25. The evil prince and his precious wife
(open for suggestions, since I love this genre)

So like I said... I've read A FEW. And these are just the ones I can think of. And hands DOWN. This is the best one I've read. You will be doing a disservice to yourself i you skip on this one.

If you like a BAD TO THE BONES heroine who doesn't take sh*t from anyone because of all the tragedy everyone put her through in her previous life... you'll love this. She is smart as a whip and plays everyone like a chessboard. AMAZING.

And what can I say about the Male Lead.. ahhhhhhhh seriously. I just can't. He is super smart like our little empress. And he has complete trust in her abilities. He isn't controlling or an a**hole like a lot of the genre's heroes are. I just love their interactions.

And the plot? FABULOUS. You'll never know what she is up to next and it always exceeds your expectations. I can't wait for this to be translated more. Of course I'll be reading as the translations come out.. but will definitely re-read from Chapter 1 over and over!!!

10/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Masterpiece of the genre, I really like the rebirth, reincarnation, second chance genre involving empresses etc, but up until now, the novels have always either disappointed me in the end or didn't make me want to continue reading.

I read Princess WeiYoung, Congratulation Empress, The cry of the phoenix which reached the ninth heaven, Chu wangfei, Chonfei manual, Mei gongqin and a lot more, sometimes read only some chapters, others almost read until the end, and some were completely read but I always felt something missing.

This one is truly beautiful, I do not like sad stories, I don't even get the reason for reading them as I want to be happy when reading, but this novel made my heart melt. In the lasts chapters I cried four times for four different moments and reasons, I just felt my tears rolling down without me noticing and I really have to say that it was well worth my tears.

This novel reminds of Princess weiyang but there is one thing that elevates it, the True love. I dare to say that the love described and narrated here is one of the most beautiful and dreamed love, a fated love that lasts lifetimes.

It is a Second Chance story of a girl that regret what she has done and use whatever she can to change her destiny, she's ruthless with her enemies but warm with her true family.
I have to say that there were some crude part that may seem a little scary but if I think about it I can understand that probably in the past such things might really happen so beheading or torturing people is something you can accept plus it also gives a touch or realism.


Recommended absolutely☆☆☆☆☆, today it has become my favourite novel in the Second chance genre, whereas for the Memories of the past life "Beautiful Bones" is my favourite. <<less

Binge reading from jan 23rd and finished on feb 8th.

This is a story of a scorned lonely empress who was being plotted in her whole short life. In the end, after her death, someone who loved her chose to sacrifice himself in order to pay her back and right the wrongs. I'll rate the back story 4...
... more>>

The empress got her second chance, and she is going to out manuver those who tried to plot her. The plots are sometime over simplified, tangled but not very much so. Still, i'll rate the tactics 4...

Slow romance with both sides prodding each other before the male lead fall in love first and decided to conquer her. The protag, as a jilted empress, innocent and dense in the way of love is so cute to watch. In short, cute romance but once again overly... illogical on someway so i'll rate it 4 again.

The whole story, thought feature revenge and second chance as main theme, is not as poisonous as Princess Wei Yang. So, for people with less... affection to cruelty, this novel is a good first step to introduce in to the genre. The entire plot line and character growth, i'll rate it 5.

Just like Princess Wei Yang, the ending left us with warm and fulfilled feeling. This certainly deserve another 5.

Certaintly better than Mei Gong Qing and Chu Wang Fei. Highly recomended if you like The princess Wei Yang and To be a virtuous wife. <<less

I finished reading this. Excellent gem among the rebirth woman genre.

It'll show you how the MC took certain steps in the earlier chapters and you'll keep on guessing how all those steps will eventually converged together to become the antagonists downfall. The plot is not draggy and the intrigue is always there.

Something like princess wei yang with less controlled facial muscle, and like phoenix ninth heaven with less brain. Mc is not a tiger that mask herself as a pig, i don't think she can. Even after reincarnated she still don't know how to hide one's fang. But what can I do if I fell in love easily with this sort of genre ^^

Will rate in the near future when more chapters are released!

If you can't get enough of revenge stories with second chance, then this should be added into your arsenal. We have yet to see how she will scheme and the ML has not shown his appearance yet but this is giving me some Wei Yang vibes. Going through life and death for the one she loved only to find that she was the fool and she was just a disposable pawn. So far it is similar to most others in... more>> the similar genre but I find that this is written quite well. I look forward to see how this story will unfold and how deep the schemes would be!

The translator has worked hard and I definitely recommend this if you enjoyed Princess Wei Yang, Chongfei Manual, and Mei Gongqing. <<less

Unique, thrilling badassery.

To put things succinctly, the protagonist was once an ignorant fool. However, after experiencing many wretched pains, physical and emotional alike, that the majority of the world would never experience to such a degree (mentioning the royal betrayal in her past life in the beginning of the story - literally royal), or such contrasting accumulations of experience in their entire lifetimes, the things that happen to her in her second life thus far are menial and very well underneath the point at which her composure would falter.... more>>

In other words, she knows that the stuff that gets thrown at her (all those typical villains do is make her look better >:P) in her second life is nothing compared to the events she experienced in the past, so she doesn't feel sh*t.

I've read too many soul and mind-swapping novels to count, so I couldn't help but get bored of them. However, despite that this novel has a somewhat similar concept, the fact that she travels back in time and in her own body as a bad ass pulls me into the story. The execution is good enough, I think, because I don't unconsciously focus on it or scrunch my face over errors.

So seriously, give it a try. >:--0 <<less

Better than average. A wronged Empress travels back to her youth and sought to change everything, bringing along her lifetime of experience and cynicism. No longer the naive idiot that was being laughed at, now she would strike first against those who had wronged her.

Quite similar to The Princess Wei Yang where the MC is willing to take matters into her own hands, rather than just reacting to the 'crisis of the day' type scenarios. She sets out to influence things before they happen instead of just passively overturning this... more>> or that plot that comes her way. <<less

Another do over, where the heroine gets to go back to her 14 year old self with all her knowledge before she died in the future. She lived a completely miserable life being taken advantage constantly by family, friends and her husband. In the end she suffers a quiet death after seeing all her closed ones, including her children die in scheme after scheme.

After her rebirth, she takes revenge on everyone that did her wrong in her previous life. Often using the same schemes that her enemies did. But this time, she's forewarned with all her prior knowledge.

Most of the story is about her manipulating all the people who are out to harm her and her close ones. With so much heartache and anger towards her enemies, there's not much of a romance feeling until the end of the stories. Learning to accept her new life and let go of some her heartache takes most of the story. As a result, she's really not open to true love until the end.

It's quite a likable story, I do wish it was a bit longer and romantic, but it closed quite nicely with a happy ending for all.

Though other rebirth novels have other things to recommend them, this was, hands down, the most thoroughly and consistently enjoyable one of the lot. Much less angst, much less tragedy, and it's pretty much smooth sailing for both the MC and her love interest. You never feel for a moment that the world they inhabit is not in the palm of their hand, so that, for both of them, teasing/watching each other becomes the really fun bit in an already plotted world. Extra points for the aspects of her previous life... more>> which are revealed late in the story which she never knew before she died - cute. <<less
