herself without permission.
Rather than being rude, she probably didn’t know any basic etiquette or something like a vassal bow.

She said she had no recollection of her parents and had been living with only her grandmother for as long as she could remember.


A girl with unmistakable jet-black eyes.

Her hair color could still be doubted because it could be colored with charcoal, but eye color couldn’t be changed by hand. 

And so, Joanna was kept under the Royal Castle’s care temporarily.

The king arranged a room for her at the back of the Royal Castle to keep her hidden from the public eye and assigned her an etiquette teacher in case she was later confirmed to be of royal lineage.

The mystery now was…

How did the church know of Joanna?

How did they get wind of her?



“…She’s not my child, okay?”


The king couldn’t stand the cold stares coming from Rose and Edward and emphasized it again for them.


“No, really, I’m telling the truth…”


“ “…” ”


“R-Rose? You believe me, right?”


“ “…” ”




“ “…” ”




“ “…” ”


“Excuse my interruption, but I have also confirmed this matter with Your Majesty’s older brother, who has been confined to his residence ever since the coup d’etat ended.
At that time, ‘How could this honorable one possibly have an affair with a lowly commoner woman from the countryside? How repulsive…’ was his response.”


The prime minister’s report, which the king hoped to be a rescue boat for him to escape all the distrustful stares, turned out to be just another blow to his already questionable integrity.


“True, that is no doubt something he would say.
After all, he is someone who will even look down on a Marquis’s daughter because ‘we are too unequal in status’.”


Rose nodded after hearing the king’s older brother, Cain’s, response to the prime minister.
What more could she say? She had personally experienced how difficult this person could be after all.


“Well, my uncle does have an extreme sense of elitism.”


Edward agreed with Rose’s remark.


“…Nevertheless, that child is not mine, okay?”


“ “…” ”


“O-Oi! Prime Minister! Say something to Rose and Ed…!!!”


“ “ “…” ” ”


“Prime Minister! Not you too?!”



Translator’s comment: 

[The baron and his son were sure that she had to be an illegitimate child of someone in the Royal Family.
And right that moment, they just wanted to scream, ‘We’ve had enough of all the mess those royals have made.’]

This reminded me again of how bitter it was to be a borderland lord and kinda tempted me to just translate it to ‘We’ve had enough of you royals’ sh*t’.
