Even Though I was the Real Saint, I was Exiled—Which Means my Country is Over


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

“You are not the real saint, you’re nothing but a fake—!!!”

I, Eliane, am suddenly exiled. Not only that, my engagement was also annulled by Claude, who was both my fiancé and the first prince of my country.

Claude claims that Leticia is the ‘real saint’, but I know from the beginning, she is the woman he has been cheating on me with. So here I am, sharing his wish to cancel our engagement.

But, is exiling me truly a wise decision, I wonder? Exiling this me, the actual ‘real saint’ who has been setting up barriers and supporting this kingdom from shadows?

Maybe, just maybe, dragons and archdemons will invade my kingdom starting from tomorrow. Who knows—

—not like it’s any of my business anymore.

I have abandoned my own country and have thus decided to have a peaceful life.

Meanwhile, the kingdom, which has lost its true saint, is on the path to ruin.

Terrible story. FL gets everything without trying and good looking guys just fall for her because she exists. The villains are so flat and have no depth. The translator was funny with the comments which were better than the story after a while...

I'm shocked at how many people were upset that she left without a fight when she was exiled because wouldn't there be just as many people proclaiming she's just a spineless doormat for staying? Imagine if you worked as the only janitor to a hospital, you sterilize all the rooms, wash the bloody and bile soaked garments, clean the tr*sh, get only get paid the bare minimum with no complaint. But one day your boss fires you because you're "not doing your job", are you supposed to throw away your... more>> pride and beg to stay because deep down you know the hospital can't run properly without you cleaning up after everyone?

The story is extremely simple and to be honest I skipped almost all the chapters except for the ones where the prince was facing consequences for his actions. I only read the face slapping bits so I can't comment on any romance but from what I skimmed it's a really shallow self fulfillment story. MC is the typical all loving saint archetype with bonus points of being an actual saint, who is exiled and ends up going into the neighboring kingdom to become their saint instead. There's no deep plots, she just moves from one toxic work environment to a better, happier work environment instead. It's not a great story but the simplicity is kinda refreshing if you were bored and I enjoy seeing the idiotic prince face consequences for his actions. <<less

Imagine condemning an entire kingdom to death cause of the actions of a few

You know someone once said that these Novels are written by people who were fired from there jobs. These novels basically play out the fantasy that there employers will beg for them to come back later because the company (country) is now falling apart, and "we actually need you"

I'd get if the MC would want to abandon the country if they abused her or persecuted her. But over a broken engament she dosent even care about makes... more>> her seem like a selfish smug a*shole who would let innocent people die because her ego was bruised

I'm wondering why the higher pers gave sainthood to such a pretty person? With great powers comes great responsibility after all, but at the first sign of people being against her shes letting the country die

I'm sincerely hoping shes loeses her powers too. But let's be real. We all know that's not gonna happen since MC sama is always in the right <<less

I have not read enough to judge the story itself, but the initial setup for this is horrible.

The country has a saint who is responsible for maintaining a barrier that keep out demons, dragons, etc. It is a old and valued position that entails a lot of effort to keep the nation safe.

The Crown Prince (who by tradition is engaged to the Saint) claims she is a fake and wasting tax money (apparently she lives modestly, and the prince wastes money to no end).

The crown prince then declares that the... more>> girl he has been having an affair with is the real saint (she is not)

the floozy also know it, and seems this seems to be part of a scheme to either get back at or get with the prince of the neighboring country (the ML) who ignored her advances. She is a form of sorcerer who seems to use curse magic, and even used it to kill her family, and seems to want to get the saint position so when she floods the neighboring kingdom with cursed goods, using a high ranked adventurer as a patsy, then need to come to her to fix the issue.

She keep mentally calling the Crown Prince an idiot for believing her lies, but at the same time her plan has major flaws in that the saint rule has requirements to fulfill she can not manage so how can she be called on if no one other then the CP thinks she is the saint.


In the most recent CP and FS chapter she gets a bit of karmic punishment in that a curse she used to send the assassin to kill the MC and ML backfires on her and she gets horribly disfigured, then apparently demons invade


CP even makes a couple standard villainess bulling accusations like shoving into ponds and destruction of property (all self inflicted by the FS) then exiles the MC, and threatens execution so that he can claim to be kind with just exile.

So the MC agrees to leave, on her way out the knight commander asks why she is not praying like she is supposed to be, MC explains the exile and he is not pleased but other then offering a carriage to help her leave does nothing about it, like question or complain to someone who could over rule the prince. So the MC takes the carriage to the neighboring country, and start a new life.

The problem here is that the Saint is important on a level that there should be 0 chance the prince would have the authority to replace the saint on their own, it should be a position on the level of Prim Minister (as it is that important to the nation) or higher and take multiple people or alter. The prince should not have the authority to exile the MC, and as soon as someone else hears about it they should be making sure it was properly authorized (since it is important enough that the head of the knights should be notified in advance, as he would be expected to arrange people to ensure the MC leaves. Plus as far as I can tell the only ones at the banishment are the MC, as well as the CP and FS, it should be in front of the full court, and even announced to the public but it seems other then the couple people the MC meets no one knows anything until it is to late.

things start going down hill for the country that night when a dragon notices there is no longer a barrier and does a fly over, even taking human form and taunting the prince that he screwed up, of course there is no attempts to oust the prince or FS so far even though he gave the nation a death sentence and is wasting their funds

if you like atypical cliched and badly written mary sue story with a terrible world building then this is for you.

The heroine is a super OP marysue who is loved by everyone "with a brain" even when she has the personality of an unseasoned boiled potato. Some may say she is just being the kuudere rational type or that she is the type that just goes with the flow, I prefer saying that she is the type that literally has no personality, a bland moblike character whose every move are... more>> made because she is dragged by the plot.

All the people are idiot except the MC and her people. The only trait the antagonist have is that they are evil and that they dislike the MC, It's amazing how idiotic the antagonist is and yet the MC can't even fight back considering how she is supposed to be smart and logical? I mean even when both of the antagonists IQ combines, it doesn't exceed one digit? It's not that hard to outsmart them, really. Besides being someone so crucial for the kingdom you would've thought she has more power, but no, she was banished by the prince, yes prince, and even more ridiculous, because she is bullying someone with no title, someone that is basically the prince mistress.

on to the world-building, actually, almost all otome game is ridiculous in this part. They always make banishing and breaking a very important engagement seems so easy, from the crown prince breaking his engagement with this powerful noble daughter, or his engagement this princess, and in this case the crown prince and the saint.

Does the church does not object? Your saint is kicked out fo that ridiculous reason?

the parliamentary? The nobles? I mean to have that position, you would at least have a brain to side with the saint for the good of kingdom and yourself? Is there no one being detective towards the claim that the prince and fake saint make? No one?

other royal families? Does all engagement is so easy to break in the otome game? Where are the consequences? Wouldn't the crown prince faction suffer a loss?

does the common people will not riot? The saint has just been kicked out?

breaking an engagement is hard for both part, other than the cancelling of everything! Because of the scandals, both will be subjected to gossips, and if one of the party is in good standing with other nobles, oof, by the end of the year, your name, regardless of your title, will be dragged to filth. Terminating an engagement could result in legal actions! Whether it's money, property or even your child being illegitimate, hence no title!

Okay, maybe it is an authoritarian country that does not place and important towards religion, but considering the dragon arrive because there are no more barriers, what about countries with no saints then? That's mean the country that the MC immigrate to should have been ruined along time ago as they have no saint if so that's mean the people of her original country should have known that a saint is important, hence church, especially the saint, should have more power, if not more power than the prince.

as for MC people, all of them are powerful and always either "instant respect" or "instant love" towards the MC and of course, they will all give their life towards MC and hurts the people that try to hurt her, yada-yada.

In regards of whether she is selfish or not, I would say she is, again you may mock and scorn it, but it is the truth, great power came with great responsibility, we human will always have responsibilities, whether it's from our action or our status. To be a parent you have the responsibility to care for your child, a teacher to teach, a student to study, etc.

She has the responsibility to protect the common people and not shirk them just because 2 idiots, but what baffling is again, because of the world-building, she with this crucial power, has no power over the kingdom??? Are there no church in support of the saint? No nobles or royalty in support of the church? What is the attitude of the commoner in regard to church? Why are there no riots? Why is it so easy for her to be banished when in reality, action such as this has a great political backlash for the prince?

It hurts to read as it reminds me of terrible self insert oc fantasy fanfics that run rampant on Wattpad. <<less

So far, it's only been suspiciously convenient plot development with no antagonist or conflict whatsoever.

... more>>

She happens to meet someone on her way out of getting exiled, who happens to be the one person who would arrange a carriage for her to ride in. On her ride, she happens to find someone in trouble. The one in trouble? A prince of another country. She saves them (because their trouble happens to be needing healing and she's a saint), gets invited to the castle, and gets pampered like hell. Like just give her the world already author, because everything just seems to fall on her lap neatly tied into a pretty gift wrap and bow for her to open.


This is an example of a passive protagonist.

Active protagonist - Someone who moves the story with their own actions. They may get caught in incidents (or cause it themselves), but they're eventually the one who resolves it. Or makes it worse. Regardless, they're the ones who move things along.
Passive Protagonist - Someone who does little to nothing, and everything just happens while they watch. They get caught in incidents, but the incident resolves itself somehow. Press a button to win. Deus Ex Machina and all that.

As for the fate of the kingdom where she was exiled, it seems like it's gonna be dragged on as side chapters from their POV slowly over time. To remind you once in a while that they made the wrong choice. Despite the fact that it's the title and should have been the main plot point.

It might change over time, but it's been disappointing so far. <<less

I like this premise that the MC is a practical girl who's just interested in living a good life. The MC is someone who has sacrificed her life and energies to protect the people of her kingdom from demons by becoming The Saint and she's even honouring her country's traditions by becoming engaged to the Prince. But the Prince is a womanizing incompetent idiot who exiled her. I read some reviews about how she's selfish for leaving but she didn't leave, she was exiled by royalty and disobedience usually results... more>> in capital punishment. <<less

Simple, the author didn't put much effort into this.

MC is a saint with powerful magic able to protect an entire country and the fiancé of the prince. But was mistreated for no reason. She live in a more or less servant room from the description and was allowed to take a bath once every week only 5 minutes. That not a treatment for the future queen.

The prince fall in love with another woman, declare MC is a fake saint and exile her but no one oppose it. Like, the king... more>> or the counselor, no one blame him either. (That is explained somewhere in the story (The king lost faith in the saintess long ago and lay the ground to dismiss her eventually, he removes everyone faithfuls, one by one), but it's look more like an excuse because there are no hints at all in the firsts chapters.)

MC leaves the country without thinking about the population of the kingdom. I don't like it, not because she wants a better life for herself, but because she knew better than anyone that her departure will be the collapse of the country and act with an "oh well, not my problem". It's not her fault if the prince is s*upid, but her behavior don't make her a good person, at least for me. I will stop here, I guess you understand now.

In the end, it's not a story you will like it if you want something logic or realist. But if you just want to read a story without depth it can be good I guess. <<less

The author really had to try to write this as nonsensical as possible. Characters have zero depth and change faces and personalities within the same paragraph. Plot doesn't exist. Author seems to also think a female likes to be forced and have their o pinons/thoughts decided for them. *Hyper aggressive guy that you've known for a day touching and telling you what to do* FL: blushes.

First off, I read this story out of spite because most of the people at the comments section seems like holy mothers who would willingly scrifice themselves and living well for duty. Ok? Cool?? Now move on and read another story.

Pretty generic formula but its really not that bad. Honestly, I'm determined to like it because of the negative reviews. It's wish fulfillment shojou, what did y'all expect? Realism?

Dragon notices the saint's barriers are gone, pays a visit to the Idiot Prince (IP) who's cowering in an air raid bunker. He breaks through the fake saint's barrier like it didn't exist, asks the prince where's the saint. IP points at the fake, dragons no I mean the saint. IP explains how she was driven out for being such a tax burden (she's treated pretty much worse than a maid). Dragon is laughing his a$$ off, explains just how the country is doomed from the demons and how he's off to find his friend the saint.

IP Should we do anything about this?



So yeah it's a bit much. To the people who say she was morally wrong for condemning the country

  1. She was forced out, exiled, banished wasn't her choice
  2. She was treated worse than dirt
  3. Just what did she owe anyone in that country that didn't help her?

A light novel with quick little updates. Focuses mainly on MC immigrating to a new country with random chapters showing that the crown prince and fake Saint are still idiots who will never learn and this destroy a kingdom.

ML shows up quickly but romance is not really developed at chp 21.

MC seems pretty 'go with the flow': kicked out of the country? Okay I guess. Pet Demon needs healing? That's fine too... A bunch of people need saving? Let me area heal right quick.

Not worth a read unless you are a freakin martyr. MC is too damn nice for ger own good. The kingdom that banishes her only get invaded for a bit then MC still rescues them. No vengance happens which is understandable since she is a saint... but come on author-san, no karma?? The jerk prince and curse fake saint gets off like nothing happened? If it was possible to rate negative 5 stars I would have

I don’t mind cliches. Sometimes, I don’t mind 2D characters. Sometimes, I don’t mind “every one loves the protagonist” stories. But this story is the epitome of tell, not show, with bland 1D characters who exposit exposition in an unnatural manner. A lot of what the main character tells us about her life in her old country feels retconned, as though the author decided at the last minute to throw this or that detail in without any buildup or prior hint. I’m not one of those who thinks the MC... more>> necessarily made the wrong decision leaving, although I can understand the other side’s arguments. But the whole “I have to hide my identity” thing feels s*upid and wasteful and is

very quickly useless.

She could have used her identity as the Saint as a bargaining chip for wherever she decided to go, but no. I don’t remember even receiving an explanation for why she wanted to hide it in the first place.

Every chapter I wonder why I don’t drop this. I suppose because I keep hoping the story will turn out better. So far, it hasn’t.

I’ve given it two stars because the translator does do a good job, and at least the story isn’t offensive in any way. It’s just badly written, as others have pointed out. <<less

Reasonably entertaining with little substance.
Simple but effective style of overpowered super perfect to the point it’s irritating MC, with vague slice of life elements.
It’s a decent ‘turn your brain off and wind down’ read if you don’t mind insanely flawless MC with most characters having very flat personalities.

Okay. First I need to do justice here for those that have this novel a 1-star.

1. Remember, this is a comedic novel, so it's meant to be funny.

2. Bruh, someone mentioned that the novel is very convenient and gave the knight captain as an example. I mean if a knight captain can't even help arrange for a carriage, then who else would be able to? Convenience-wise. There are others rated with 4-5 stars yet they have horrible Mary Sue and Gary Stu characters. The FL here is still decent compared... more>> to them. 3. So far as COMEDY novel, the clichés are still acceptable. And the novel is mostly geared as something to read while waiting for updates on other novels.

4. It's Slice-of-life so expect a slow-paced, chill story. <<less

The big problem with this story is that a country where the prince - not even the king, the prince - has the power to exile the person who is strictly necessary for the kingdom to survive at all would have been destroyed long ago. No way a single person who hasn't even inherited the top position would have that power. And apparently the witnesses didn't mu*der him on the spot for heresy. Maybe the saints have been so successful that the people of the kingdom don't even believe in... more>> demon attacks any more, but it doesn't look like anybody is going to do anything about their missing saint problem or their too-dumb-to-live prince problem any time soon, so the country is set to go downhill really quickly.

What the country really needs is somebody to invent the guillotine. <<less

It makes no sense that one person is given the power to protect a whole country and that the world is so black and white that one country is filled with bad people and another with good people. But I imagine that this is what most people secretly desire. To live in a world, where you are needed, loved and worshipped by everyone, because you are a special being, and where you can never be at fault, since you are a victim. It is unrealistic and unattainable, but it sure... more>> does satisfy the ego. <<less

It's not "that" bad...

I've read worse, I've read better...

It falls right in the middle of the "OK" spectrum.

... more>> It's a comedy, but sometimes the joke falls flat, it's too bland, it feels like eating plain oatmeal in water, no milk, no sugar, no salt, it's just filling without any kind of flavour.

The tidbits that are interesting are when we "see" the trouble the kingdom that expelled the Saint haves after she leaves but this are very few and far in-between.

I find it hilarious that a bunch of people tried to paint the MC as a psychopath, dude, you're giving this novel too much credit, it's entirely shallow and bland, the characters are just monikers for the absurdity of the situation to unfold.

I think the problem comes from the fact that the novel is written from a first person perspective, changing POVs when appropriate, because you're supposed to be laughing at the absurdity of what's happening but since all we see are the MCs thoughts we are missing the reactions and musings of the people around her.

It's just like "Chronicles of an Aristocrat Reborn in Another World – the Apostle of the Gods Who Know No Self-Restraint" but with a saint MC instead of a reincarnator noble kid, AND following the clichés of the "villainese otome" novels in a more absurd story.

So, if you're waiting for another translation or novel, this one is fine to pass time, it's filling, you feel like you're reading "something" even if it's just a pretend novel that is as deep as a puddle after an afternoon drizzle.

BTW: just FYI, if you are unclear on what the stars mean, hover over them with your mouse, the middle one, 3 stars is "OK" 4 means "GOOD" 2 means "POOR" so yeah, this one is right in "OK", 3 stars.

BTW2: If you've never written a Novel, I don't think it's fair to say "the author didn't put much effort writing this"... I mean, this could be the first Novel of someone and they racked their brains trying to construct it, it's not "THAT" badly written and talking badly about an author just discourages them from writing and improving... <<less
