The Princess Wei Yang


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

Life is unpredictable. Her husband loved her stepsister, deposed her as Empress and even forced her son to death. In that Cold Palace, she was forced to drink poisonous wine. So in the next lifetime, she made a promise to never do good deeds and help others, to never step into the palace and to never become the Empress!

At the Prime Minister’s estate, the mistress’ daughter is reborn into a she-devil.

An evil stepmother? I will make sure you go to Hell!

A two-faced, hypocritical older stepsister? I will rip apart that beautiful façade!

A scheming younger stepsister? I will throw you into the grave!

You guys didn’t let me live peacefully so you should also expect the same!

Initially she wanted to stay away from disaster as far as possible; however, a man’s heart is like a needle in the sea—impossible to search for, impossible to understand.

The man who once swore to abandon her became someone who can’t live without her.

The enemy from the past lifetime suddenly confesses his feelings for her.

Even worse, she is bothered by a handsome man with a thick-skin who doesn’t know how to give up!

Honestly, I only discovered this romance through the c-drama Princess Wei Young. I have to admit, I am happy to watch the drama before reading it, because I would be very disappointed in the drama. I love the novel so far because it shows her a lot more, her past, how to plan her revenge, how she does it and the emotions the author gives her. It really makes you feel for her, you just hate her ex-husband. The story is intriguing and attracts you. I would like to thank... more>> Jasmine for translating the novel, I thank you for the excellent translation. Please don't stop, I'm very anxious for the end. <<less

Typical reincarnation revenge novel, not the best of its genre but not bad by any means. The face slaps are satisfying, the execution of the revenges are and viscious. An issue I have with the novel is that there are way too many cannon-fodder villains and the way Wei Yang deals with the schemes aimed at here. Villains scheme something on the spot > Wei Yang finds out about it one way or another (because protagonists always have better intelligence networks right?) within the next 2 or 3 chapters >... more>> uses their plan and turns it all back on them. It gets kinda dull after a while.

A second issue I have is not reflected in the score I gave to this novel. It is the slow translation speed. If this translation pace persists, it will take more than 12 years till the day it's fully translated. I do hope my interest in this novel does not wane until then. <<less

Overall, this novel has a lot of satisfying face slapping and deaths. The revenge was well served and the political war was great. JUST THAT:

1.) Omg I feel I cannot breathe at all with all the non-stop drama scene fights btwn MC and her enemies. It's endless. When one enemy goes down another appear. Like girl, we need some peaceful time too before drowning in the sea of drama.

2.) The story overall was very repetitive. Like a cycle of jealousy, hate, revenge, bit*h slapping time and then die or being... more>> accuse.

3.) The overuse of how handsome or beautiful ML and MC is or how handsome the princes are.

4.) To me the story pace is a but draggy. <<less

First, the story is sooooo good.

The translations are soo slow, I read of raws and gtranslate actually did an amazing job.

Story progression is very slow, but I also liked the round about way of revenge (it is not direct like malicious empress).

Weiyang is just that super cool gangster with sharp mouth and superior intellect. I loved how she made all her enemies, both past and present, get a thousand times more worse ending. Unlike many female, even male protagonists, she is not afraid to kill and kill she does, in... more>> so many interesting and ruthless ways.

Minde is super sweet and nice (only to weiyang). The perfect bad boy who is only good to his love. Im glad he could be weiyangs support system at every point no matter what. Their romance is very slow, but I get the reason.

All in all, there are many things to say, but im not sure if I can put my thoughts in a way to justify the goodness of this book. <<less

I have read this a few months ago but I still have a very good impression of this novel. This novel focus more on the revenge than the romance.

From my impression, this book has really great writing style. This novel consist a lot of suspense and twists. I enjoyed reading how problems are tackled a lot. The plot is really great except that sometimes I feel like it keeps coming one after another which may be quite annoying.

The female lead is smart and she mostly make good decisions. Even for... more>> some difficult decisions that may be heart wrenching, I feel that I was able to understand her feelings and would probably do the same. Her desire for revenge is very strong throughout the whole novel which was one of the worries the male lead had.

The male lead which is saved by the female lead gives me the impression of someone mysterious, cute and strong. He has many secrets and a lot of surprises. I find him cute because of how attached he is with the female lead which is like the few sugary parts of this novel. The surprise I remembered the most was:

that if I remembered correctly, he is older than the female lead. Haha I remembered that the female lead was very surprised but angry since she treated him like a child and which I believed changed infront of him (if my memory is correct). Another secret is that he is a wang ye from another country with mysterious past.


I don’t have much impression regarding the other male leads. But I remembered one of the male lead which was the ex husband of the female lead was terribly annoying.

A family that I love was:

the family that adopted our female lead when she was in the foreign country (the country where the male lead is a wang ye in) where she becomes their daughter. She was adopted in just because she held the bracelet of their daughter which passed on (that story was really sad but I wouldn’t spoil it) and the mother has mistook her for her daughter. Of course, she confessed to the truth to the other family members and the family members had adopted her and slowly accepted her.

I love the family because the brothers were very smart and they helped each other. Even though at first they didn’t really accepted her and was in doubt, but as it slowly goes they accepted her because she truly helped the family. They discuss problems as a family as well where our female lead gives great idea. They knew that she wanted to use the identity for a certain reason but I remembered the father of the family has said that if they have enough money and power to help her, they will do that.

I feel that even though the mother of the family knew that our female lead isn’t really her daughter, but she still love her like her real daughter.

In my opinion, this part of the story was like compensating the lack of family love that the female lead was lacking which was really sweet.


The plot may be quite heavy with many deaths and plotting. Therefore, I would recommend reading this novel to a reader that is looking to read a revenge novel with sufficient romance. <<less

This book is good. Is it great? Will I reread it once the translation finishes? No. But it is a good story.


Most rebirth stories start from revenge but drifts off the more romance. This book gives you a ratio of 3:7 in terms of romance:revenge. As someone who is a sucker for romance this book got slightly boring. The plot isn't special, but the descriptive writing is good, and the schemes made sense too so +1


At the time I am writing this I've only read till chapter 108.


... more>>

is ruthless, if you step on her toes she will cut off your leg. Having deep truama from her past, romance is at a turtle's pacing. But I really like her contempt for Tuoba Zhen. It makes sense and feels good when she repeatedly slaps his face. She treats ML like a child, which I don't blame her, he is literally a child.


Tuoba Zhen


where do I start with this a**hole. He has superiority complex, narcissism and some type of God complex like everyone owes him something. He is the epitome of I-cant-get-this-girl-so-im-gonna-chase-after-her-more. Which is infuriating considering he totally disregarded MC in the last life.




nothing much so far, he's strong and has a mysterious backing. Willing to lay down his life for MC, the usual. Endearing at times because he acts like a child sometimes, because he is a child lol.


Tuoba Yu


I don't know why but I hate this dude more than TZ, maybe because his character is super hypocritical. It's nice to see him kind of fall for MC? But he said in one chapter that MC is so strong that even if his Mother shcemes against MC she would be able to take it. So MC should refrain from retaliating. MC replied by laughing and (not literally) telling him to go screw himself. My view of him plummeted from there


One thing I have to note is that I am a Chinese person, so I do understand terms thrown around. But sometimes I find it abit redundant, for example Qi Yiniang which basically means Seventh Concubine. To be honest I believe if all these terms which are very commonly used in the story could just be direct translate over would greatly help non-native speakers. A compromise would be Seventh Yiniang, as I believe that letting readers know the numerals could let them furher understand the heirachy in the household.

Translation is not terrible, there are little errors, just maybe abit too much hanyu pinyin for a non chinese speaking reader.

But tbh, you should atleast try out abit of the novel instead of relying solely on reviews, everyone has a different cup of tea after all. <<less

Overall a good novel. If you love gory revenge and a smart MC, you will like this book. I've read a lot of rebirth books (most on this site and around 10 more that have not been translated yet) and this is definitely the most violent, so be aware if you aren't used to this genre.

Revenge is satisfying. However, I feel like the MC sometimes goes overboard with her revenge. Yes, some villains did really bad things and they "deserved" what was coming, but others did not. Judging by... more>> her past experiences, she's evidently developed a lot of psychological issues which probably feed into her revenge schemes. Super gory details as story goes on.

Relationship between MC and ML is pretty sweet. ML falls in love pretty quickly with MC but it takes till the very end for MC to accept ML because of the cruelty she experienced in her past life.


I actually liked the second part of the book a lot more than the first half. Her adoptive Guo family is so nice and MC became more human. MC's adoptive brothers are really funny and I love how she considers them to be true family by the end. I also really like her eventual best friend, Miss Wang, and their interactions with each other.


Plot - 4/5 - TL;DR: Revenge, revenge, romance, revenge

Characters - 4.5/5 - Most of the villains are pretty one dimension. The big villain of the 2nd half is pretty amazing though. I like MC, despite her extremely vicious tendencies. ML sometimes seems a little too perfect but he's so sweet.

Writing - 4/5 - Decently well written. I feel like some sentences were pretty repetitive but it's a long novel... so :/ English translation quality is very good. <<less

This is a well-written revenge story about a former empress who is as merciless to others as she is to herself.

If you like an extremely intelligent, hard-hearted, malicious, yet righteous female MC, this is the story for you.

If you enjoy seeing two-faced, villainous characters get their just deserts, you will really enjoy it.

... more>> If you are looking for fluff and romance, look elsewhere.


This story is very similar to The Malicious Empress of Military Lineage, except with more male love interests (but less romance), more emphasis on family hierarchy, and main character who is a concubine's daughter with no support.


The translation quality is good, but there is a LOT of Chinese vocabulary to memorize, and characters' names are frequently mixed up. Overall, it's still a solid translation and solid novel. <<less

Really good story about revenge and schemes. The translator is doing a great job in translating and can not pick any flaw.

Update review : completed chapter.

The first half of the novel was great but the second half was dragging and I felt "tired" for unending scheming for majority of the characters. There were plot twist and lots of scheming.

At the end will reveal the tue identity of Li Min De which was quite complicated and unexpected at the end because of the plot twist. Of course there was happy ending for the main characters.

The Princess Wei Yang plotted all the hallmarks of an awesome (and bloody) noble/palace intrigue, triggered by the coming-back-to-life event of the much-bullied empress of an ancient country. There's evil stepmothers and stepsisters, ignorant father, undermined mother, big-hearted grandmother, and some love interest candidates. The author didn't hold back from gruesome murder, and the MC is someone who is true to her mental age as someone who experiences second chance at life to get revenge and justice. The premises are not really original, but the development is captivating. So far,... more>> it is pretty cool and I've got high hopes for its future chapters. <<less

I love the level of detail and intricacy this novel goes into. It never drags down the story but adds an extra layer of depth to everything happening around Wei Yang. Despite her scheming, I can't help but like her and root for her. I'm very interested to see how far she'll go as she gets older... excellent story, wonderful translation and overall an enjoyable, satisfying read!

Interesting story so far. Her life was so sad and pitiful. But now that she's learned a lifetime of lessons... bring on the carnage. I'm here for the revenge and carnage. Please don't disappoint me with another cheesy romance. I want MC to remain cold and merciless to enemies. Never forget, never forgive.

Reminds me of Chongfei Manual except less cute and much darker.

Read up to CH 6. I have to say I found this story very interesting. It’s like if a fairy tale romance story like Cinderella or Snow White who ended in tragedy. However, if the heroine was given a chance to go back in time and right the injustices done to her what would she do? Get even, hell yeah. A heroine that was betrayed by her husband, step sister, and basically everyone her has the chance to relive her life and instead live life with her eyes wide open... more>> and for an eye for an eye mentality. Being kind, gentle, loyal, and charitable got her nothing but betrayal. Instead, in this new life she will do the opposite! <<less

Whaat I feel like some people are way too harsh on this story.

I've never read Rebirth of a Malicious Empress so I won't bother trying to compare the stories based on the other reviews.

I actually quite like this MC and this story. Someone says all she does is falsely accuse her enemies and it's just the same tricks, but the settings are always different. In fact, one of the things I appreciate is how the author really brings us along with her story, how she goes from an insignificant little... more>> s*ave child to a person others can't touch, every step of the way. Reading the reviews, I was worried she was helplessly cruel and merciless on innocents, accusing people of crimes they may not even commit yet. However, that's not the case (except for the situation that caused her to get mad at 7th). In every situation, her enemies were scheming to trip her, and she's just there to guide & reverse the situation. If her opponents didn't provoke her, she also wouldn't provoke them.

Although most of it is quite realistic, I'm really upset about the character & background of ML. It just makes no sense to be inserted in the story, and feels like it's just there to give MC convenient plot devices and support when she needs it. I will say their relationship isn't the typical bickering-playfully-to-lovers like many of these stories but rather they become very close and reliant on each other before feelings become more romantic. But ML's background is just too crazy golden finger falling out of the sky lmao. In most situations it's okay for me because she doesn't actually rely on ML to achieve her goals, but sometimes it makes me a lil uncomfortable lol. Also she's a lil TOO smart, like some of these things it doesn't make sense that she could know as well as she does...

I also wish she had more allies, or half-allies. I feel like the characters on the cusp always get warped into bad guys when I wish that weren't the case (eg. Jiang Yue Lan). It's a pity, otherwise it could've been a great way to show character depth.

I do think most of the character portrayals are quite good though. We see transformations and distinct characters, like the Emperor. It kinda makes you think "how could he be so foolish" but at the same time very distinct and still okay.

Anyway, bookmarked. I did get bored earlier in the story, but the mysterious, face-slapping-deserving nature of these arcs are quite engaging. <<less

I give 4 stars mainly because of the ending which left me a deep impression where I didn't see this intriguing plot in any of the historical novels I have ever read. Honestly 1st half is seriously good but 2nd half in West is repetitive and boring. Also fight for the throne at the end is very rushed and weiyang x Yuan Lie ending ... more>>

and weiyang x Yuan Lie ending is very rushed. I got the Throne fight results in two chapters and weiyang ending in one paragraph ??‍♀️ but still Queen of the West is amazing in the extra chapter, also I fell in love with antagonist in the end. I came to this novel for The Princess Weiyang but West Queen got my heart in the end. Omg that plot twist before the west Queen dying in that Palace fire with West King is amazing ? Whoever imagined that Yuan Lie is the real biological son of Queen but the Prince is the biological son of Qixia Princess and King ? That Prince is really pitiful (he didn't get either king/Queens love even his wife/lover is not truthful also his rightful throne ?) and I'm so sad for him but still West Queen Son Yuan Lie didn't inherit the throne (i wonder how she will feel after knowing about it) because all he wanted was Princess Weiyang and he did really succeed with getting two kids as well ? Lol ?

In the end, it's a good read if you can tolerate/skip some of boring chapters in 2nd half. Must Say West King, West Queen, Qixia Princess, Win Chu, Dali King & Queen, Jing Wang, all these main characters are pitiful because no one got their love back from their beloved ones. They failed in getting their love except for Princess Weiyang. She is the only one who got their beloved love/hubby in the end and so happy ending for Princess Weiyang after rebirth ?❤️ <<less

Currently half way through the story, reading the raws. Enjoyed the story mostly but starting to dislike the ML. Feel that he is very possessive, annoying even. He is like those other men/love interest in the story, viewing MC as an item that is his.
