Florentia was reincarnated as the illegitimate child of the richest family in the empire.

She had thought that everything would go well in the future.

But her father had passed away, her relatives left her at the doorsteps, and the honorable family she was so proud of was completely ruined….

But is this real?

She drank a little (a lot) and was hit by a carriage,

When she opened her eyes again, she was seven years old?

Moreover, the Second Prince, who was the enemy of her family in her previous life is following her around like a dog!

“Tia, you’re prettier than me.”

“….Are you kidding me right now?”

“No. I mean it.”

Alright, both the Second Prince and the family are mine!

In this life, I’ll have to become the Overlord.

The story is still pretty cute. The FL isn't all knowing through she does take advantage of her memories. And she seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

The translation is fine. Not perfect but there are just minor mistakes.

Easily one of the best rebirth/reincarnation KR novels I've read! You can't help but get attached to the characters (looking at you, Gallahan). The webcomic is equally as great, but there's still a long way to go lol

The story starts out great but for some reason the original translator stops and a new one takes over. I could not read further as the person clearly does not speak English (or speak it well). My gripe is that if you’re going to translate a novel, at least be able to speak the language competently. You don’t need to be perfect, but it needs to be comprehensive. It’s a waste of your time and energy when you’re doing a less than sub par job. My new motto in life... more>> on reading novels from this website: “ I don’t have time to waste on bad translations.” #sorrynotsorry <<less

4/5 star

well it's good, good plot, good characters. just another cliche rebirth/future vision thing and a typical ML who "cold to other and sweet pampering to fl". not too light or heavy novel but u can try it, good politics play. FL is considered pretty smart.

[but... ]

i know it's fiction, but I want to criticized about the ending from political aspect. it was definetly worst choice about lombardy and royal marriage. they're like old friend and nemesis, always do 'check and balance' each generation. but what happens when there's... more>> a marriage, even a love marriage not political one? the child one will be royal heir and one will be lombardy's, they're siblings received love eachother make loving family, there will be uncomfortable feeling when you have to 'check and observe' your siblings and slowly will make the lombardy and royals united, isn't it makes worst, there are no contradiction make the nobles worried about royal power

So to read this you’ll have to read on multiple sites, & the last chapters (it’s still incomplete) aren’t listed on NU. The first /00 & some chapters were a bit of a slog, first I hate reading on wattpad & the translation is understandable but off. It’s just a bit challenging to stay involved. But then the translators change and it becomes so much better. If you like a strong female protagonist you’ll love this. By chapter 313 your basically reading the side stories and the extended happy ending,... more>> but idk if it’s still being updated. I hope so bc I want to see more of Florentia’s parents story (tho it’ll be sad bc Shan will die when Tia is 1), & I want to see more about Perez and Tia as parents. But again there’s enough to see the happy ending and the goes vanquished. I totally recommend bc it’s a great read. <<less

the story is very good. Almost a spoiler but it's very similar to 'lady knight is back'the characters are adorable and the s*upid ones remain s*upid. We have a lot of plot twist and some really funny scenes.

... more>>

regarding the marriage between Lombardi and Durelli, yes from a political point of view it doesn't seem like a good choice but what downside would that be?Florentia did everything she wanted, the family thriving on her hands. She never mentioned that she wanted to get married or anything or keep the Lombardi cloak over her. She knew she was the best choice to save the family. Florentia's desire for power is not out of greed but out of love for the family. So I think it's right for her to pursue what she wants best for her.

I really love the manhwa art! The story is so good too, but the plot is so slow. The MC is smart and intelligent and the ML is cute like hell and make my heart hurt bcs his life. And I love how the Father is just a normal Father that can show up in reality, the grandfather tho. I can't remember all the name of character bcs it's hard to spell.

But the tl is really hard to find, I don't know where to read novel, so sad...

Really really recommend... more>> it!

Note : Sorry for my bad English. <<less

The story is good. There's nothing like filler between the story or something that is not important. Everything in the story is almost perfect. And I love how ML react to MC. I love her family like her dad, her grandpa, her cousins, her aunty, love them all (except their uncles and her first uncle's family) It's just so cute... And I'm just sad that the lovey-dovey scene is not clearly explained in this story, hmm maybe in the side story, I hope?

This will be one of the novels that I'll read again sometime. It's hard to describe the emotions I felt while reading this. The flow of the story reminded me of The Great Storyteller. Because I didn't feel any climax or extremely high tension. It felt like I was just there watching, reading, and gushing over the characters. I like it. I like the characters a lot because they are strong on their own field. Even the females, they have their own resolve and carved their own path. I didn't... more>> read Gallahan and Shan's story because damn, I don't want to cry. I don't want to think of them for like a week. <<less

The writing of this story is very ~eh~. Its understandable what is happening but is this a writing masterpiece? No.
But does the story have an interesting plot with developed characters? Heck yeah!
I think in the genre of generall korean webnovels this is one of the better ones I have read. Sadly this "novel" is more like a script for the webtoon, which is a better medium for this work.
If you start reading the webtoon and you can not wait for the next chapter I can say that... more>> you can easily just read the webnovel to get the craving fixed.
You can find MTL translations till chapter 314 (completed) so dont get discouraged by the listings in here! <<less

Overall, it was a fairly enjoyable read. MC is a returner who vows to find happiness in her new life by taking over the family she is proud to be born from. Knowing the future, as well as having memories of helping her grandfather run the family in her past life, she has quite a bit of knowledge and experience she can leverage to her advantage. That being said, there are things that don't always go quite as planned as a result of her own meddling in changing history (though... more>> for the most part things basically always go her way iirc).

I didn't care much for the romance aspect, never felt like ML really treated her as anything other than an object he desires and wants to possess. Also the whole MC being a Korean who was reincarnated in this world just wasn't necessary. I don't remember her memories of her Korean life mattering at all in the story, especially when any and all business related knowledge or expertise could easily be explained by having worked side by side with her grandfather in her previous life until he died. <<less

Really loved the transition through and into different ages as opposed to just abruptly becoming an adult, I feel like a lot of novels where the MC starts out as a child don't get that right. It has all the elements I love in a novel as well ; a smart and cunning MC, cute family/father-daughter moments, politics and business, romance and a puppy ML. !!AMAZING!! Honestly one of my favourites. 10000/10

I would give more than five if I can. I love this series. It's a well executed story with strong, likable MC. Kim Ro Ah is a name worth to remember for. She didn't just write fantasy romance solely from imagination but using real world knowledge to build her story. Good author! :)

Good art and as for the novel, good story. Complex political situation and likable/dislikable characters. Tia and Perez are cute and their interactions not forced, seem natural. Even the ending, which is not the best political wise, is believable and gives credibility by being flawed and makes the whole story seem even more natural. Loved it!

I finish reading this a months ago.

If you are looking for a well written plot with a long story that is not concentrated much in love story but to character development. Then you came to the right place.

Florentia or Tia as she was known in the story was given a chance to save Lombardy's name to ruin because of his bastard uncle. She save also the ML who is Perez which originally has a lot of talent and become the King in the end of the original. Tia saves him... more>> here so Perez will have an easier life compare to back then.

Giving this 5 stars. This is how much I love this story. When I read few chapters back then I know I will love this. But back then no one translate this, its just become popular when the manhwa was released. Which is not bad but I really recommend to read the novel because it was written well more and much more detailed.

Lets go to the characters!

Florentia or Tia

  • She was looked down by his uncles and some cousins due to the reason she was a daughter of the woman who has an unknown origin.

    Her mother's origin has an ancient power or something. Her mother is in a tribe.

  • She was smart and good at manipulating. The same with management due she turns backs the time. Yes you've read it right she manipulated the time without her knowing after her death.
  • She was very lovely. Definitely!
Perez our handsome ML. I cant really get over with guys with handsome face in novels lol.

  • He is a pitiful child because his father is crap

    His father is the one who killed his mother.

    . His stepmother is crappy too.
  • Of course he is smart like our FL. They are meant to be!
  • He is cute when he always together with our FL. My heart!
All in all theres a lot of good scenes in this stories. Which is interesting to read even though I'm taking a hard time due I read it through a MTL.

Sharing some wonderful spoilers to you. I just need to share it!

There's a scene where Florentia and Perez was fighting for a business of a special kind of woods. Actually Tia lose to the battle and she didnt know who is the owner of the other business. The same with Perez didnt know that the actual real owner is Tia.


Inserting this one also its a near ending scene.

Tia realize that she don't have any second life due to her power. That's the side effect of her power. The same with her mother who see future. Resulting to her mother accepting her death. When our lovely Tia realize theres no second life for her. She looks for Perez to confess her love to him. This is a wonderful and heartbreaking scene.


This is a strong story with a little love story. Who cares if it has a little fluff and love scene if the story was written well.

The conflicts of every families and branches who supports is really interesting. Its deep and its not likeable if you are not into political things.

But because I love reading political conflicts and deeper stories. That's why I love it.

If you have a lot of spare time. Kindly read this, I assure you this is one of the greatest novel you will read! <<less
