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.

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

After assisting her husband for six years, she finally became the mother of the world (Empress).

She accompanied him to fight for the country, flourished the country’s territory, took risks to become a hostage in another country. When she returned five years later, there was no place for her in the Inner Palace.

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

Her daughter met with a violent death and her son the Crown Prince was deposed. Her Shen family who sacrificed themselves for the country and the Emperor, not a single one of them were lucky enough to escape. With the change of one dynasty, everything was overturned. Her clan perished and she had to mourn for her children.

Shen Miao never thought that being a married couple who have gone through trials and tribulations and mutually assisted each other was just a stage joke to him!

He said, “Seeing that you have followed Zhen for twenty years, Zhen will grant you an intact corpse. You should thank this kindness.”

Under the three Chi (1 chi = 1/3 meter) 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, when the tragedy had yet to occur, her family was still alive and she was still the pure, amiable, quiet and yielding Di daughter of a military lineage.

Relatives hiding a black heart, Elder and younger (female) cousins are ruthless and malicious, the new Yiniang is like a tiger watching its prey and the disreputable man who wants to repeat the events?

Her family must be protected, the huge enmity must be avenged, the Imperial seat of the country must also be a 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, “Just the fall of the Imperial power. Remember this, the world belongs to you. You– Belong to me!”

This is one of the best rebirth/second chance story that I would recommend...

Although the near the end problem is quite unnecessary but everything is quite closed and explained well and wished will leave you with good feelings as you finish the book

10/10 would reread again when I finished my waiting list

I read this a month ago and I'm just writing a review now because I can't keep but miss Little Xie Marquis and Shen Miao, sometimes I even pray that let this awesome novel have a drama adaption.

The MC is cold, calm, and collected, nothing can make her still but ML. While ML is mischievous and suspicious but once he gets through his suspicions you will be one of his men (of course if only you are loyal to him). The first few chapters were dragging and the Shen family... more>> arc but after you go through it, you just want to not stop even at the expense of your eyes going blind. This is more of a slow-burn trope, but nevertheless it did not diminish the beauty of the novel.

When you are already at the last arc, you just want to scream and cry because of Emperor Yongle and Xuande Empress, I SWEAR I CRIED LOADS OF TEARS AND I DO NOT REGRET IT. And when the 'final boss' appeared, the relationship between Shen Miao and little Xie Marquis wavered, even I was nervous as f*ck because it dragged for a few chaps. Good thing that everything ended up happily.

I especially loved the epilogue- Shen Gege and bestfriend of Shen Miao's love story is so so cute! But that's not even the best, MC's going back into the past was so so good! I can only lament that it wasn't longer : (there was nothing tear-jerking in that MC going back into the past but I cried :>>>>>

6/5 !! Will definitely reread in the distant future, <<less

At first it seems like a very cliche CN but it is (in my opinion) the best among them. I've read many rebirth CNs and some feel like a waste of time as authors try to expand the plot to the point that it is not consistent. The plot in this CN seems so simple at first but then it gets deeper, one should have the patience to see how the story would flow.

Real couple goals tho. SM and XJX's relationship isn't as toxic as most main relationships in novels.... more>> Both of them had suspicions on each other so don't expect a 'love at first sight' crap here. There is an incident that would probably make some of you dislike the ML but his actions at the time are justified. Her problems aren't always solved just because XJX appeared (although it helped) and XJX would always ask if she needs help but he won't get in the way and meddle (sometimes giving a bit of a push to help). Their relationship has its ups and downs, SM has her secrets and XJX is a bit of a hot head, you could say that their downs helped their relationship progress.


SM picked worms and somehow became a farmer just to get a herb thinking that it would save XJX, she didn't care that it was too troublesome, would dirty her appearance, and didn't mind that it was an entire valley (? Not sure 🤔). XJX, actually knelt down and begged Shen Xin not to take SM away when she was in a deep sleep (coma). (Tho he also threatened him). Compared to the start, you could say that they have changed for the better.


I just wish that the author added more fluff scenes for the side couples

The translation isn't that great? Its good but it has some flaws. There are a lot of grammatically incorrect sentences and some mistakes in typing but you can still understand it, so its not a big deal. <<less

I listened to the advice of those reviewers who told us to endure the first third of the novel. So far, fifty four chapters in, it ain't getting any better. The FL and ML met a couple of times, no spark, for she is at least twice his age in years lived, in her mind and experience having been married for twenty years with kids, and romantic sparks off the bat would feel inappropriate to say the least. According to the age of their bodies they are like Romeo... more>> and Juliet minus passion or love for anyone, but for their fathers. Shallow concerns prevail - what to wear, how to sparr verbally or with brushes with teenagers in the same family or classroom. The hero and heroine are punishing people premptively for things they haven't done, not in this lifetime anyway and of the previous life deeds the potential perpetrators have no idea.

We are forced to observe for hours and hours the world of useless people who don't work or do anything else worthwhile, not even having fun or enjoyment of any sort, and to know their puny thoughts and motivations. Boring AF.

The translator is good, a native English speaker she says, yet she hasn't had any luck with finding a proper editor. The level of grammar in the published text is simply medieval. There are also things in translation that are inappropriate re time and place, like one guy telling the other several times that he was the limelight of... Limelight is from Western theater of the 18th century! Chinese speakers in ancient China wouldn't mention limelight in their speech!...

Ok, I still hope that the story would become good at some point. Or at least that some people in the story would display some good qualities and behaviors. Off to continue reading... <<less

Ive been reading novels from books and other applications. Never thought Id read this novel, first time I read a novel here and this has been the BEST novel Ive ever read.

Everything was perfect. The characters. The timeline. The execution. The revenge.

The only unfortunate thing for me is I had a hard time reading another novel because this has been a high bar to reach. I don’t know about anyone who wouldn’t appreciate this novel but Ive read ALOT of books, different genre and even educational or just books but... more>> I will definitely recommend this one.

Ive read almost all revenge novel that was recommended but no one is better than this one. Hands down to the translator and the author.

Also one of the best ML of all time. THE BEST. Im always comparing him to any other novel ML ive read and well, they always come short. <<less

Very good novel.


I just wish the white tiger played a slightly bigger role than it did. It was gradually removed from the novel towards the end. It would have been nice to see the white tiger-all grown up-killing the remnants of the rebels that happen to make it into the palace.

Strong start, Super strong Middle, kinda weak ending.

It's starts out amazingly, with a clear background, motive and hitlist of people to get revenge on. The flashbacks to her past lives are unobtrusive and relevant to her grudge and the scheming is great.

Like most stories with a strong non-romance plot, once the main couple is consolidated it's just love love from then on.

Still, a hopeful GE and extras, complete with a couple unmentioned plot holes.

With just 230-ish chapters, I didn't think this novel would take me weeks to finish (the chapters are long). I had the mentality that since it was so highly rated, it HAS to be good so I kept waiting and waiting. I really set myself up for failure due to the expectations I had for this novel. That's not to say that this novel isn't good. First and foremost, this is a revenge novel and the revenge is so satisfying. Prior to this, I read another revenge/rebirth novel but the... more>> author for that novel gave us some redeeming moments for some of the villains that in the end I felt a bit of angst towards the MC. But the author for this novel did a good job portraying the villains in such a way that I didn't fault the MC's revenge plans for them (or if they had a redeeming quality (Gentleman Pei), the debt paid back was acknowledged, in my eyes).

The romance played a secondary role. I could not get enough of the romance though. I wanted more! I wanted more interaction between our main leads throughout the novel. The side stories were really good too.

The Good: I really liked all the characters in this novel. MC was really cool throughout. However, when her biggest nemesis finally shows up, all rational thoughts went out the door and I felt she became reckless. I understand her reaction because she hated this nemesis so much but at the same time, I felt like, where's the cool and composed MC with the intelligence and scheming go? ML is typical overbearing. I actually really like him a lot.

The Bad: It did drag quite a bit for me. I felt like there were too many details that I didn't care about and too many repeats of things that had already been explained in detail before, especially about her past life. I did a lot of skimming. There were also some events that I just didn't think was necessary.

The translator did do a good job but it really needs to be re-edited. I didn't realize that the author wrote odes to ML's appearance so much but it got annoying when the translator add parenthesis within the content with their opinion about it every single time it comes up. <<less

I really, really love this story. I've been binge reading it for days until the late hours of the night. The FL is vicious and rightfully so.

Although the author likes to repeat over and over how handsome the ML is, haha. But the pacing and progression of the story is just right. The point where I am reading, the romance is a very slow but simmering burn, which is nice that it's not the primary focus. Just nice.

The faceslaps to the people who deserve it, 1000% like. I bow to... more>> the FL. <<less

Loved this story. One thing this author does well (and it's present in their other reincarnation stories) is that you can really feel that the character is reincarnated. The FL is a 30+ year old Empress who has lived a tough life, and you can tell in everything she does. She cannot live out her lost childhood and she has a hard time considering other teenage girls as friends. Her character is dark and does some questionable things, but she's had such a rough life before that you can't help... more>> but root for this empress.

One thing I loved is how the FL and ML's relationship developed. It was not love at first sight, but rather respect at first sight. They're not enemies but they're not allies right away either, and they both have the air that they'll leave each other be as long as they don't get in each others way. It creates an interesting dynamic, and I appreciate that as a power couple, they both contribute in different ways. He's offensive and she's the defensive. Overall, they compliment each other well.

It's not a flawless story, and if I could, I'd probably give it a 4.6 out of 5. The front-half is stronger than the back-half in my opinion, and there were some unnecessary subplots at the end, but oh well, don't let that stop you. The rest of the story was great. I've read the author's other two works after this, and I'm waiting for those to update. <<less

One of the best rebirth stories ever. The way the FL slowly punishes those that harmed her in a previous life is just fantastic. The ML is also fantastic and his story arc is really great. The ending is also good and I love that all the good characters have their happy ending. A must-read if you love rebirth-revenge story.

AHHHH! I just love this novel soooo much! Can't believe it took me only 3 days to finish all chapters 😭😭😭

I have nothing negative to say at all. The translation especially is perfect. The romance although slow was very much to my liking as well. Love it especially whenever she's drunk and mistook him as a gigolo hahaha! What am I supposed to do with my life now that I have nothing to read? I should've taken my time reading this gem. Lesson learned the hard way 😂

When I started reading this there was only a few chapters translated and the release rate was very slow and random. However the chapters and characters were one of the best I had read for ages. I had to read each chapter as it was released. In fact during one small hiatus I started reading the beginning chapters again. (Mainly to see more of the ML scenes and compare it to the current chapter.) I've read face-smacking and female strategist novels before but they have never really compared to this.... more>> To be honest this book is one of my favourites and got me started on my web novel addiction. (Many thanks to the authors, translators and editors). <<less
