In the novel universe, Remarried Empress probably holds the record for the most anticipated and celebrated divorce.

The Emperor and the MC (Empress Navier) have been peacefully married for three years until a damsel in distress comes into the picture and gains the Emperor's favor. Falling for her lies and consumed by his selfishness, the Emperor tosses the MC aside and divorces her to make his concubine the empress.

The first several chapters may seem dragging/annoying with the concubine's fake crying and the Emperor's st*pidity, but you'll anticipate how the MC will... more>> stand her ground and turn the tables. And unlike other MCs, she has the guts to get out of an emotionally abusive relationship and control her own life, rather than letting her life control her.

It'll be so fulfilling when the Emperor finally divorces the MC and she quickly agrees like she can't stand another minute married to him, then proceeds to introduce the king of the rival country as the man she wants to remarry, which will shock everyone to the core. And that pivotal moment, my fellow readers, will make everything that happened worth it.

So, strong-willed and level-headed MC + dashing and adorkable ML + compelling plot... Highly recommended 10/10

As a bonus, Remarried Empress comes with gorgeous, official illustrations in between chapters. But if you want more visuals, check out the webtoon adaptation and/or the simulation app. <<less

the emperor is super s*upid. The concubine is annoying as fck. But the MC is super smart. And the ML is soo cutee. Overall the story is a good roller coaster ride. Maybe if you watch kdrama the world of married, this is kind of similar in term of having your emotion goes up and down

Well, I'm hooked! Every other day I wait eagerly for a chapter to be released.

The Empress is a woman in an amicable arranged marriage whose husband has just acquired a new concubine. The story of him and his concubine is something out of a flighty fancy fairy tale - they meet in the woods, he accidentally injured her, her innocent ways open his eyes to a whole new world outside of the schemes and political intrigues of court, Disney musical ensemble, etc etc.

Meanwhile, his wife exerts unbelievable patience, putting up... more>> with her husband's obvious honeymoonish infatuation. She's obviously going to ditch him for someone better at some point and I'm waiting while foaming at the mouth.

This is a pretty new novel and so there isn't a lot out yet. But it's quite promising, so I would definitely recommend it if it's to your taste! There is only one issue with it for me, and it's the translator's website (the actual translation is excellent). Adblock is not permitted, which is fine, but some of the ads can be very annoying and intrusive, especially on a tablet or phone.

.

EDIT: So I binged and MTLed this story all the way up to chapter 70 (the translator divides chapters into half, so this is about 140-ish translation-wise). It's good, but the first 30 (60) or so chapters can be pretty slow. Things really start to pick up after that - secrets and schemes and blackmail oh my!, and around chapter 60 (120) I'm getting quite excited. But it's going to be a long wait for those waiting for the translation.

Spoiler

Chapters 1-30: Navier is a punching bag, the ML arrives. Everyone hopes that Sovieshu dies a dog's death, what an a**hole.

Chapter 30: Rashta's old s*ave owner blackmails her and she begins to participate in politics with a friend (?) advising.

Chapter 45 (ish) : Rashta becomes pregnant. It's made clear to her that the child will not be a part of the royal family, and she starts getting desperate. An attempt is made on her baby's life and people start really investigating her background.

Chapter 65 (ish) : Sovieshu figures out Rashta's secret and who tried to have the baby killed, and comes up with a very (very) s*upid plan to legitimize it that involves divorcing his current wife, raising Rashta to become empress until she gives birth, and then marrying Navier again. Everyone hopes that Sovieshu dies a dog's death, what an a**hole.

Navier learns of the part of Sovieshu's plan where she's being divorced, triggering the actions that eventually lead to the scene in chapter 1, which I believe actually happens around chapter 80-something or so.

Surprisingly, I find myself really sympathizing with Rashta the more I learn about her. She's not a shallow white lotus villainness who does malicious things for petty reasons, but instead a character who behaves like what her background has molded her into. Habits that served her well as a s*ave don't do her much good as a concubine (aside from evoking pity). She doesn't mind using her body and beauty, which she probably learnt as a s*ave, but she has dreams of being loved and is starving for affection and attention. She's incredibly protective over her children and only really trusts herself with them. It's still unknown if she's hiding more malicious intents, but so far she seems to be more or less what she says she is.

The first chapter caught my attention right away.

Why?

Because it's satisfying seeing a slag man put in his place. I hope to god the author meant the ML be the other guy propose to the empress.

... more>> Our FL is obviously the Empress. Her relationship with the Emperor was amicable. They are good partners. Until a vixen messes with their relationship.

The vixen acts so cutely, naively, and innocently. Because of this persona she portrays in front of people, they chalk it up to "oh she's just an innocent and naive woman.", whenever she acts rude, says hurtful things, clinging to the emperor in public, grabbing attention of the other males, and keep calling the empress "Sister because we share husband."

Not to mention the amount of cries she happens to summon whenever the Emperor happens to came across her and the Empress. It makes it looks like she's being bullied by the Empress.

Let me tell you my opinion : if a woman uses her body to wreck someone's else marriage, she's definitely not an innocent and naive woman, okay. Am I right or am I right?

I like the novel, really. But I'm torturing myself reading the Empress getting such injustice until she's finally met the one that matters. Ugh.. I want to hug her and comfort her so much.

There is nothing worse feeling for her than a wife who been battered by a mistress acts then the husband comes along and gives her a finishing blow. This is what happens almost all the time.

PS : Having a sad background doesn't justify trampling other woman feeling for your own happiness. Not to mention the said woman HAVE NOT DONE anything to you. <<less

This is a really really great novel 10/10. Beautiful art story and characters. I specially love Heinley for being the cutest dog err bird husband.

Navier is an awesome protagonist who is the epitome of what an empress is. They just have really low EQ from being royalty (which led to the whole fiasco). But she's cute when thirsty haha I love those parts

Henley is so handsome I'm crying over his illustrations T.T cutest bestest boy, but still shady asf.

To everyone who hasn't read up to chapter 70+ of the KR... more>> novel (the divorce proceedings, the translations cut the original chapters into several smaller ones so I think they are only around chapter 35), do not judge the characters specially Soviet because there is more to him (but still a blind bastard shit)

It's amazing how the characters simply evolve from the stereotype of reverse otome game villain, the character development is clearly seen (specially Rasta from dumb bit*h to annoying b*tch)

My only complain is like, where are the dowager or previous emperor or something because damn the wrong decisions in life man

Ps. Heinley half naked totally makes me think of that song "I'm too sexy for my shirt"

Spoiler

Soviet is actually not all that blind, he knows everything about Rasta being a s*ave and a bit*h and is just covering it up because he needs the baby, which leads to his downfall because he wanted a successor more than his wife (but tbh it was a tough decision because there is no one else to succeed the throne). He keeps complaining that Navier is infertile (I'm guessing it's not true I think the marquis asking repeatedly "how are you sure (she's infertile) " is a foreshadowing, but he is convinced that he/she/both are infertile because they ate abortion cookies when they were kids (which Navier almost ate everything)) but like maybe they just haven't been doing it enough? Seriously he hasn't touched her once except that time on her birthday (which didn't follow thru because Navier got disgusted and he was sick), and he didn't even wonder or care about Rasta being a non virgin (does he even know the difference)... and Navier wouldn't be that shy seeing a naked man's body when she sleeps together with Soviet but she's like a virgin lady (or Heinley is just too hot). But yeah things wouldn't have escalated so far if Soviet and Navier were just honest with each other, the whole point of the divorce is to make the baby a legitimate heir, also because he feels threatened because Naviers brother used abortion pills so he thinks Navier and her family will hurt the baby. Soviet actually planned out a lot, he wanted to reinstate Navier to empress after a year, he never planned on letting her go, he kept all the dirty shady evidence against Rasta to divorce her after a year but he didn't tell Navier anything and didn't know how deep her relationship with Heinley was. It's Soviet's loss in thinking he can keep her as an abandoned empress. Navier thinks that Soviet is head over heels in love with Rasta and is doing everything (false charges against her brother) to divorce her, so she gets panicked and asks for Heinley's help. But sadly Navier doesn't love Heinley yet, she just kinda asked for his help as a friend (which hurts because he is whipped). At this point, it's still possible for Soviet to win her back and remarry her (since she admits to loving Soviet, but hasn't told anyone yet, and yes Soviet loves her and doesn't actually love Rasta)... but ofc I am rooting for the bird king... though Heinley has more chances with Navier in his bird form tbh XD archduke is also a tremendous cutie pie who needs a girl XD

For anyone who is considering reading this novel. The translator has been asked to stop releasing chapters by the author, the last translated chapter is ch. 173 (174 is an announcement).

Just thought I should mention it because it is a great novel and I certainly got hooked. So for the ones who might not remember to check the release status, just be aware that as of now, there are no scheduled releases Q-Q

I cannot put into words on how much Rashta and sovie-f*cking-shoo infuriates me. I don't know how many times I've inhaled and exhaled to calm my twitching hand from throwing my phone across the room.

I want to scream for Navier at the unfairness of it all.

The worse part? Even though they grew up together they couldn't have been more distant and I blame the etiquette of the country. It's so heart breaking.

And although I understand that schemes and jeering are the norm in high society, that doesn't excuse Rashta's bit*h... more>> behavior despite her past.

I loathe her.

But I understand her.

And that's what makes me frustrated and enjoy the story even more.

But at this point I'm so exhausted at her actions that I just want that annoying sovie-f*cking-shoo to divorce Navier so she can be with wonderful Prince Heinley.

He, on god, is so lovely I cannot bear it.

A wolf acting like a puppy.
Spoiler

But in this case a bird hahaha

[collapse]

His actions are so adorable I don't know what to do except imagine the future of both of them laughing happily under the sun while sovie-f*cking-shoo realizes regret is a only a 6 letter word.

*sighs* It's so good, like, so so good you won't regret reading it and stay up until 2 am on a school night just to finish reading the available translated chapters.

I don't know how many times I had to swallow down my anger whenever that attention who*e showed up though. Especially shoo's unnecessary anger.

I hope Heinley's country swallows up shoo's country. Then he'll realize his mistake of swapping out a pearl for a fish eye.

There are no words to describe my rating/10

P.s. Wonderful translator, here's a cookie for translating the tr*sh couple's s*upidity with your lovely formatting. I love the included illustrations when the characters speak and for certain scenes. It's wonderfully done ❤ <<less

I just caught up with the novel through mtl. It's a great novel, definitely worth a read. I will say however, the novel still hasn't got to the part where the Empress asked for the remarriage yet. Also the translator seems to be splitting the original chapters into halves or thirds. So that's why each translated chapter are so short. I predict it will take literally at least a year or two to catch up to the original novel. That's why if you really want to read the part where... more>> the Empress dumps the Emperor, just mtl. <<less

The expectations the first chapter sets (Empress dramatically face slapping the Emperor in front of everyone) compared to what actually happens in the story are as different as heaven and earth. I guess the translators have been cutting the chapters up or something? Whatever the case, I read to "chapter 70" and the story still hasn't wrapped around back to "chapter 1".

It's extremely irritating and I feel like I wasted my time on a bait and switch. Not to say that the palace harem intrigue plot isn't also interesting its... more>> just... really different from what the first chapter prompted me to expect. So if I was being objective I would probably give the story a higher rating but because my expectations were raised and then completely disappointed I'm not in a very "objective" mood.

The empress in the first chapter is calm, composed, and a hair away from domineering. When the emperor slaps her she slaps him right back twice as hard. But then in the actual story she's a doormat that gets walked all over by literally everyone. The difference is mind-boggling and I hate it. <<less

I totally agree with some previous comments ! You feel it... you will really wish thousand deaths to that emperor, you will want to use this b****** to beat the not-so-s*upid and not-so-poor-little-thing concubine.

This story is a gem, really well written with well built characters ! Our progress in the story, descriptions, no shortcomings, no endless misunderstanding, the realistic backgroung (kingdom/empire and its society), not childish lovestory... everything makes it a REAL novel ! I am reading the translation made by Crystal (who makes a good job and reguliar releases)... more>> but I am also reading the original novel by MTLing it (chapter 88 was released today!).

If you want spoilers, you can visit the "namu wiki" site (you just have to copy the original title in google, it would be the first link)... by doint this, it doesn't spoil my curiosity about this novel... On contrary ! <<less

here's the tea my ladies and gents. The story is absofreakin beautiful I can say no less. Read it fall in love or whateva.

the translation was perfect, it flowed like the river nile.

It really gives a glimpse of the past, this story runs in a society very similar to that of the monarchs of the great britain. I will have to compare it to Catherine of Aragon, if she lived lol.

if you want my opinion on the latest happenings of the story here it is boo.

Spoiler

What a dick! I mean I understand some sentiment that she is in love with Sovieshu but all he keeps on doing is pushing her away! I mean you have to beg the question " when is enough enough?" And this is enough. She is too good for him, she is basically the perfect empress the least he could do is thank her for her hard work?

I like heinley because he is straightforward and nice to her. If sovieshu actually just f*cking talk to her like a normal person then maybe their relationship might work! Sovieshu is just a stuck up little prince, never experiencing life outside of his comfort. He never thinks for those around him because he think he is above them and self reliant. Well news flash little dick, she doesn't want a colleague as well.

Another argument raised is when Sovieshu gifts her jewelry as a symbol of love or whatevs. In these era jewelry is a common gift among nobels, it shows status and wealth. Even husbands needs to gift their wife expensive stuff to show that they are not lacking and business is good as usual. What I mean by all of this, you have to beg the question "Has he, the person whom knows her best, ever thought about what she likes? "

They were bestfriend since childhood he should know her like the back of his hands. Butter her up as*hole she ain't no hoe who's going to do everything you want.

He can't argue with me that because tr*shta loves his jewelry that Navier would love them too.

Seriously if you love without communicating it then what's the point? The other person won't feel you unless you tell them with conviction. She is not a mind reader and Sovieshu needs to wake up to that reality, that not every woman would cater to his desires.

[collapse]

All in all, I'm all for a divorce. This relationship is too much for poor Navier, she has suffered enough anguish. She needs a new life. Don't care about the haters saying this is a mistake because it is not. As I see it, Navier will continue to suffer on, if this marriage continues. She deserves the world and he can only give it.

As you continue on this story, you will seriously grit your teeth.
I now understand why this story needs to be told. The events before the divorce is what made Navier break and as a woman myself, I can see why she would choose to remarry. Even if it is not out of love. If I was treated that way, I would say sayonara and pack my bags, even if it hurts. I have more respect for myself.

Divorce currently in progress. One last bow for the Empress. Another for the Queen. <<less

Maybe because it´s a korean novel, the writing style and plot is quite different.

These first two chapters are quite entertaining. I´m really looking forward to the rest.

The story begins with our MC getting divorced and later it jumps to a flashback showing what exactly lead to the emperor and MC separating. MC has some spirit and composed but hopefully there´s more to her. Seems like a fun ride about ML losing his wife and regretting it mixed with jealousy and revenge marriage. Yum.

Update at ch 32: Gosh I love this... more>> novel so much. I love MC´s personality, her gracefulness and intelligence. ML is an absolute sweet pie, and as much as we all hate them, the emperor and tr*shta really are a great target for crushing later on once MC takes her revenge. I´m waiting for that satisfaction. And to the translator thank you so much for updating so frequently! <<less

I need to give precaution because you will hate the Emperor to death. Never seen someone who can tolerate him. NOT AT ALL. He's so tr*sh. Be careful, if you have high blood tension, you might hurt your neck since chapter 4!!

The emperess deals with a lot of sh*t because of her crappy husband and his craft concubine, but gets through it. The prince ends up becoming a person she can talk to, and the two form an unlikely friendship (though the prince obviously feels more than simply friendship).

so the MC empress maybe doesn't know she likes the emperor? Anyway the emperor is a bastard and one of those tropes ML that would do s*upid things for love to prove their 'powerful' or maybe because they became s*upid falling in love ugh

She thinks of the emperor as her friend and quite dissapointed on how the emperor disclosed the topic regarding the s*ave.

I like how she looks pitiful and emperor seems like a bastard

. I'm excited on the future chapters on how the story will flow.

I'm waiting on what will be the emperor's reaction when he knows that she will be remarry! Will he be dissapointed? Jealous?

Or relieve?

This novel is so interesting. Probably one of the best I have ever read. Navier has to be one of the best FL. Her character design makes her easy to love since she is so calm, smart and cool. Hate to admit but Soviesh*t and tr*shta's character designs are also well made, they are Sooooo easy to hate. Heinley is a dream boat. (Chef's kiss)

BTW, can anyone recommend me a novel which is similar? Like I am on my periods, salty as hell and need some face slapping!!

Firstly, how is it that they've been married for years yet Soveishu is incapable of having a decent conversation about anything? He clearly has the higher EQ between him and the MC How hard is it for him to say '"I know we're friends but I want a more intimate relationship so could we at least try?"

Instead of expressing all this at some point in their marriage he is clearly using his new found infatuation as an excuse to take out some resentment on Navier, He obviously loves her more... more>> than he would like to admit (though God knows why he can't) since he makes their divorce more painful and traumatic than it needs to be and how he practically holds her hoatage after the divorce. All his done is royally screw things up beyond repair.

Navier is the only Mary Sue character I have ever liked. She might seem like a bit of a doormat but it was her word against the woman Soveishu is infatuated with so she couldn't win without hurting herself so I get it, I would rather resolve things reasonably too if I were in her position. Her EQ may be pathetically low but at least she does try to respect Soveishu and Rashta because she genuinely cares about his happiness. She's so used to being treated as an Empress and not as a woman that I'm not surprised she is handling her personal matters so poorly and keeps getting hurt. Makes her more human than those Mary Sue's who never suffer no matter what they do or how they behave. She never goes out of her way to hurt Soveishu despite how much he tramples on the friendship they once had. Definitely a more mature response than his determination to make her a villain.

Henley is freaking awesome, the ML I didn't know I needed. I don't understand Rashta's appeal, I really don't. There's nothing she gives Soveishu that Navier couldn't have given him herself if he had treated her like a desirable woman instead of a friend and business partner. With such shallow attempts to deepen their relationship how could progress be made with such a dense person? Comparing him and Henley its obvious that she won't get a clue unless you make things perfectly clear.

He wants all the benefits of their marriage despite divorcing, thoughtlessly humiliating and disrespecting her for nothing then has the guts to get upset because she isn't waiting around to be trampled on and used. Someone else values her worth, not only as a good sovereign but as a woman so why doesn't she deserve a happy ending?

Such a man is even more disgusting than those ML who are cold, emotionally stunted assh*les because at least they're obviously selfish and horrible due to their arrogance not like this s*upid emperor who actually thinks he is the victim of the whole mess. Because how DARE Navier get married again? How dare she find another man after he replaces her and tosses her aside?

Totally sick of it. I'm not even consistently following the story anymore, just randomly checking in, waiting for the awesome face slapping, regret and heart ache that's coming to him. Serves him right! <<less

You know that the country is going to get f*cked in the ass if the Empress doesn't step in to mitigate the damage after she leaves. You know the Emporer and his Concubine are effed because they are about to lose the largest power their empire has, namely the Empress. You know what's going to go down, but the way the author writes and executes things just force so much emotional investment into you that you can't look away from the trainwreck that is gonna be happening in the very near future.

Don't know why this got some high ratings. The plot is s*upid and drags on and on and on. Also, the idea of "reinstating" a former empress after divorcing her is just as depressing and highly questionable, as the emperor's poor IQ. The story's plot is loosely based on historical material around monarchy despite dabbling with a little fantasy, so I don't get why the emperor, with no stronghold power, can remarry and reinstate a former empress (from an affluent noble background), he once divorced, after demoting her for a... more>> mere s*ave with no noble origins and a shady past. This plot seemed to me like overkill. Also, a little desperate. I feel like the author's purpose here is to evoke emotions from the readers which is definitely potent to a certain degree. But aside from this, everything else is unintelligent, makes no sense despite how the author wanted to make the emperor look cunning. And some parts were just unnecessary. <<less

First of all, props to translator who has done such a beautiful job, the formatting and the translation is such a joy to read and the best one I've seen. The artwork are also beautiful and adds to my imagination.

I enjoyed the fleshed out fantasy historical setting with undertones of magic, court intrigues, and different cultures of the empires.

The writing style is mature, subtle and, immersive. MC is likeable, villains (s*upid shoe and Rashta) are not, and I never feel like the author tried to make that decision for me.... more>> Each has their own driving reason behind the things they do, although it is not directly revealed from the beginning. Although some reviews mentioned that the pace is slow, it is just right for me as it helps build the eventual catharsis promised at the beginning of the novel.

i really like the MC so far, she actually has realistic emotions, and most importantly she's SMART.

the story is kinda like a cliché romance story but from the perspective of the side hoe who gets thrown away. the emperor is similar to the cliche mls who are all usually cold to everyone but then finds their one true love!! the s*ave¿ girl is like a classic female lead who hides behind the ml, cries over everything, is soo beautiful, and is naive of her actions. to them, our MC is... more>> protrayed as the antagonist, when in reality, shes the only person thinking logically. (at least this is how I interpret things so far... the s*ave girl could turn out to be a snake)

cant wait for our MC to inact her revenge!! the translation is great and i'll continue to follow the story!! <<less
