Best historical Romance Manhwa: Top 1 – 10

1.Princess imprints a traitor

Summary: Evenrose and Michael are the protagonists in this story. They both live in different worlds: He is a homunculus, a race that is only used for slavery and manual labor in the kingdom. She on the other hand is a princess in the royal palace. In order to abandon slavery and change the system, she tries to gain her father’s favor and be his successor. This Manhwa is a time-reversal story and is one of the few who actually explain why time was reversed. I love it.

You should check it out if you:

  • like it when the male lead has to protect the female lead (master-bodyguard relationship)
  • love reading about a female lead that is really kind and has a huge goal: abandoning slavery
  • like it when the male lead is pretty distrusting at first but quickly becomes fond of the female lead

2. I shall master this family

Summary: After the death of Firentias grandfather the great Lombardi family fell into ruin at the hands of her cousins. Firentia had to watch all of it and couldn’t interfere.

  • love reading a royalty Manhwa about the most lovable Manhwa-Dad in history
  • like reading a perfect story with perfect art (yes I’m fangirling for this one)

3. I married the Male Lead’s Dad

Summary: Before the female lead Aisha reincarnated into her favorite novel “Persona” she was a huge fan of Abel, the main character. After she started her life in the novel she took her stanning to a new level and send him gifts. One day Abels Dad summons her because he gets a hold of her actions. But there is a misunderstanding: He thinks Aisha is fangirling for him. That’s how their relationship starts. Read this Manhwa on Tapas.

The summary sounds kind of wack, I know, but please don’t hesitate and read this masterpiece.

You should check it out if you:

  • (like when the male lead has boobs – I’m kidding his chest is just drawn a bit weirdly)

  • like reading a great and refreshing plot with a pretty dark side
  • love it when the male lead falls in love first (he is a great ml – in my top 5 for sure)

Summary: Roxana is part of a villainous family of assassins: the Agriches. After reincarnating she knows the course of the 18+ novel and tries to prevent her own death by saving the life of Cassis Pedelian – the heroine’s brother. It’s pretty risky because she has to pretend to torture him in front of her family. Want to read more villainous-Manhwa where the villainess is actually a villainess? Check out this list: Villainess Manwa.

  • want to read a historical Romance Manhwa with godlike art

  • love to read a historical Romance Manhwa with really gorgeous art (I know, I’m kind of repeating myself)
  • like it when you don’t really know who the male lead is

6. I stan the prince

historical Romance Manhwa recommendations: I'm stanning the prince

Summary: Angela is a huge fan of Prince Rayburn – she even wrote fanfic for him. To her surprise, the cringey fanfic she wrote got published behind her back and became a huge success. When the imperial family notices the fanfic they are searching for the author and want her head for treason. Rayburn’s sister Hoya takes her in to protect her and in exchange, she has to write a sequel of her novel in secret to improve Rayburn’s reputation. To inspire her she spends more time with Rayburn.

  • are in need of new Memes
  • love reading a historical Romance Manhwa where the female lead is kind to her friends but crushes her opponents

As you would expect she doesn’t get welcomed with open arms and her so-called family is treating her pretty poorly. One day she meets Amon – a member of the divine leopard clan – who can change into a human. They quickly become close. Read more: Best Webtoons 2021.

After reincarnating Abigail doesn’t want to keep being the evil stepmother. She is still completely obsessed with Blanche, but only because of her cuteness. She calls out everyone in the castle who mistreats her – including her father. Blanche and even the King slowly start to open up to her.

You should check this Royalty Manhwa out if you:

After their first night, he disappears on a mission for three years and becomes the most famous knight on the continent. Even after three years he still is obsessed over Maximilian – but she can’t quite deal with being treated well.

You should read if you:

  • don’t mind mild sexual content (this has a smut tag)
  • like reading a Manhwa with a realistic approach to trauma (finally a female lead who doesn’t just shake it off after being abused – I really like that)
  • love it when the couple is together from the beginning (if you want to understand Riftans feelings, there is a novel from his POV)

18. For Better or For Worse

Summary: The female lead reincarnated as Lady Dillion, the villain of a novel (although she doesn’t really do much). In the original plot, her sister dies after marrying Marquess Cedric, that’s why she doesn’t like him. In order to protect her sister, she just marries him herself – although she knows he is meant to fall in love with the female lead of the original story. I love the dynamic of the Mcs.

You should read this Royalty Manhwa if you:

  • love it when the MCs bicker and tease each other a lot
  • like it when the characters have pretty surprising character traits (the stepmother, the sister and so on)
  • love reading a story where love develops from animosity

19. What’s wrong with you duke?

Royalty Manhwa recommendation: What's wrong with you Duke?

Summary: This story is about Erin and Rowan – oh wait, let me French this up: This story is about Dreux and Nöel ( I’ll explain this one down below) and their complicated love story. They start off pretty rough: As Dreux tries to kill her a magic spell gets activated which forces him to completely change and declare his love for Nöel. He is so persistent that Nöel marries him but the thing is: his lovely personality “Ru” isn’t like that all the time – there are moments when he can be his usual self and Nöel has to deal with death threats.

Addressing some issues: This one is already finished and there were some critics in the community, so I will write a short review. First of all the comment section on tapas was on fire after the first chapter came out because no one understood why they named them Dreux and Nöel. I don’t like the names either, Erin and Rowan feels way more natural (these are the names from the fan translations) but you eventually get used to it. There were also many readers who didn’t like the ending.

I won’t go into detail because I don’t want to spoil you but it is pretty tragic. I still think it was executed pretty well, there was a plot twist and the story didn’t play out as you would expect from a lighthearted Romance Manhwa. Nevertheless, it is not really the end. There is an epilogue that further shows their relationship and I love that their dynamic completely changes: Now Dreux is the one who chases after Nöel as his real self. Despite the negative comments I still love this Manhwa. The art is great, the female lead is hilarious and I have never seen a dynamic like that between the mcs in a Romance. So I would recommend you check it out if you want to read something funny but sad and refreshing at the same time.

You should read if you:

  • don’t mind a very rough start between the mcs
  • like it when the male lead has two kinds of personalities – and the lovey-dovey one is completely over the top
  • love reading a Manhwa with gorgeous art and a unique plot

20. Beatrice

Summary and Review: This one does have some issues, that’s why I will review it, so you know if this one is for you. Alexandro is pretty indifferent to life. He doesn’t mind killing to reach his goals and he is ruthless (especially in the beginning). He lets the female lead Beatrice live and in order not to be killed she disguises herself as a slave under the name “Chloe”. She gets assigned as Alexandros (the Archduke) personal maid and he takes more and more interest in her. Although the male lead is an asshole I still think it’s somehow historically accurate. Often in Manhwas they are titled as war heroes and such but are never shown in action or just have a lovely personality.

Addressing some issues: Alexandro hates people but he hates himself and his past the most. He often thinks about how he would have turned out without abuse in his childhood. That doesn’t mean it excuses his actions but it does make it believable. Chloe on the other hand is very kind, satisfied with the little things, and very bubbly. The author only threw in the Isekai part in order for her to have knowledge of plants, which was pretty unnecessary in my opinion. Chloe didn’t have much character development so far and I think it will stay that way (which is a pity). I really debated whether I should put this in the TOP 20, but although there are some issues I still enjoyed it. The story is engaging, there are hilarious misunderstandings and the Archduke does get character development.

Royalty Manhwa – You should read if you:

  • don’t mind the Archduke being a ruthless murderer at the beginning and basically an asshole (but maybe that’s exactly your cup of tea?)
  • don’t mind when the female lead doesn’t really have a goal of her own – other than surviving
  • like having lot’s of panels with fanservice (abs – abs everywhere)

Royalty – some additional historical Romance Manhwa recommendations

Popular Royalty Manhwa – Should you read them?

I have read all of these and they are entertaining, so you won’t get bored reading these historical Romance Manhwa. But there are some issues I have with these five popular Manhwas.

A Tender Heart: The Story of How I Became a Duke’s Maid

I loved the start, I really did. BUT – and it’s a really big but(ts and I cannot lie) –  the female lead is waaay too hung up on the original story. She is not the brightest bulb and keeps on insisting he has to meet the original female lead – although she already changed everything. It got so frustrating to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore. And after she finally came around there’s the very annoying crown prince who keeps pestering her and fell for her for no reason.

What it takes to be a villainess

This one is a fun read, I don’t have anything against it. But after a certain point, I found myself skimming the story. The male lead has a really horrible start and even after his behavior is explained it doesn’t really feel convincing. The Manhwa is entertaining but in my opinion, it’s kind of shallow – there is no emphasis on feelings.

Daisy: How to become the Duke’s Fiancé

Daisy is a great female lead and this Comic is a fun read. I just found that the pacing is a bit off. There are about 5 chapters dedicated to her convincing the duke to marry her and then a bit later we get about 15 chapters focusing on a designer that the fl wants to recruit – which feels like a side story.

This villainess wants a divorce

This one is a great read if you don’t mind a pretty frustrating female lead. She literally forces herself not to have feelings and as a reader, you can’t really understand why. It does get better though, so if you are willing to read through the middle part pretty fast, it will still entertain you.

The Abandoned Empress

I’m pretty sad about this one. I loved Abandoned Empress and I wouldn’t have cared with whom she ends up with, because it is an interesting story. But apparently, there were some hardcore fans who were sending threats to the author, and additionally, the author had a dispute with the artist, so the story just got wrapped up pretty heartlessly. I can’t recommend this story to anyone if you don’t want to get really disappointed at the end.

Royalty Manhwa with very little to no Romance but much politics and intrigue

I have read all of these Royalty Manhwa and they are freaking amazing. I really recommend you check them out. Especially Lout of Counts Family is interesting because it is one of the few royalty Manhwa from a male’s perspective.

  • The Remarried Empress
  • Your Throne
  • Lout of Counts Family
  • The Monstrous Duke’s Adopted Daughter
  • Who Made Me a Princess

Manhwa royal romance

Sitting on a chair and clicked the mouse, climbing on some frankly obscene site with naked titted women, which I looked at with a sour expression and undisguised disgust. However, soon he dropped the computer, stretched, looked at me stupidly and said. Ill go to my room, rinse myself, and got up from the chair.

- Yes, go to my shower, why wander along the corridor, la I kicked as lightly as possible. Sergei looked at me, thought, pulled off his T-shirt and disappeared into the bathroom.


With her hands she realized that this was the edge of the table. -It is a table. Lean on him. -the voice was stern, but not loud, but enough to understand that it was the Master's voice.
