Historical Manhwa With a Female Protagonist (No Oneshots)

These include stories that have a female protagonist reincarnated/time traveled/awake in a historical setting (Or the story may just be set in a historical setting). If you love “Who Made Me a Princess” or those villainess reincarnation stories, you should consider checking out this list. Some of these are NOT good in my opinion and I will mark them accordingly with a “😡” This doesn’t mean they are “bad”, it just means that I don’t like them. You can read it if it may suit you. Some will be marked with a “❇️” meaning that they’re ESPECIALLY good. Or at least to my opinion anyways.
1 Who Made Me a Princess

Who Made Me a Princess

❇️

So this girl reincarnates as the emperor's daughter from a novel. Of course, the daughter is over shunned by another daughter that comes later in the story. So our girl is making sure she won't get a bad ending, therefore she will make her cold father adore her!

2 Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady with the Lamp

Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady with the Lamp

This girl reincarnates to her past past life, need an explanation? Here: So she was originally a villainess but then she got a death sentence. She reincarnates as a girl in Korea and becomes a very talented doctor in order to make up for her past life's sins. Of course then she dies again and reincarnates as the villianess from her original life. 

So now she uses her medical knowledge in order to survive as the villainess.

3 My Fair Footman

My Fair Footman

This duke has a butler who's actually a girl, pretty simple.

4 They Say I Was Born a King's Daughter

They Say I Was Born a King's Daughter

😡

The art is real bad later on, the story is also stretched a long long way. But the start isn't too bad.

This 'slutty' girl gets reincarnated as a princess in this world where girls are basically nothing. Thankfully she's a princess so she won't have such a horrible life. She decides to make her brothers and father adore her so she can live a better life, can she change the gender norms in this world? (She can't btw)

5 A Talented Maid

A Talented Maid

❇️

This incompetent maid has always dreamed of being competent (as in, being good at cooking, sewing, dancing, singing, she just wants to be good at everything). One day, she helps this old man and this man prayed that her wish would come true. 

AND IT DID, she became competent! She uses her new skills to help people, very wholesome.

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

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

This girl feels bad that her favorite male character didn't get the girl, then she reincarnates as a maid of that male character and becomes his best friend, or something more...

7 This Villainess Wants a Divorce!

This Villainess Wants a Divorce!

So this girl reincarnates as the villainess in her novel, she dies if she marries the prince, so this girl tries to divorce the prince.

Of course, since she's not actually a villainess, the prince falls for her and they get all lovey-dovey. Basically, she gained the prince's trust.

8 Beatrice

Beatrice

So this girl reincarnates as a slave, she then gets adopted and becomes a noble. Then a man kills her people and captures her. However, this girl is actually pretty happy because she hated being a noble (being a slave was peaceful).

She and the man who captured her get really intimate.

9 What It Takes to be a Villainess

What It Takes to be a Villainess

😡

Girl drowns, becomes villainess. I don't really like the art, the story basically is 'must survive as the villainess'.

10 The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke's Mansion

The Reason Why Raeliana Ended up at the Duke's Mansion

😡

This girl needs to avoid marrying this mean dude so she doesn't die. She goes to the cold hearted duke for help.

11 Iris: The Lady and Her Smartphone

Iris: The Lady and Her Smartphone

😡

This girl reincarnated and gets a smartphone. Wow.

12 The Abandoned Empress

The Abandoned Empress

One day, a girl with black hair and eyes walks across water and marries the emperor. However, this white-haired girl is mad because this black-haired girl doesn't actually want to be empress (even though it's a honor). 

The white-haired girl eventually gets killed, along with her family, because she and the black-haired girl have a bad relationship. She reincarnates as a kid again and makes sure she and her family survives!

13 Miss Not-So Sidekick

Miss Not-So Sidekick

Girl reincarnates as the villainess's sidekick, in order not to die, she's trying to be friends with the protagonist. It's a very funny story.

14 As You Wish, Prince

As You Wish, Prince

😡

This girl wrote this novel and now the 'evil' prince captured her to make him get a good ending. The girl has the power to do anything in this world, because you know, she created this world. Wordering why she doesn't abuse this power more.

15 Beware the Villainess!

Beware the Villainess!

❇️

Girl reincarnates as the villainess and gets rid of all the crappy male leads. There's a lot of unique takes this story does with the villainess reincarnation genre.

16 The Lady and the Beast

The Lady and the Beast

Girl reincarnates and marries this literal wolf, actually she tames him and her husband becomes her pet.

17 Chitra

Chitra

Girl reincarnates and she can Gacha some stuff to rebuild her kingdom.

18 Villains Are Destined to Die

Villains Are Destined to Die

❇️

Girl reincarnates as a villainess in a video game. Must make a male lead love her so she can return to Earth, hopefully. This is probably one of the best ones on this list. It's a lot more dark than the others, a very nice read.

19 50 Tea Recipes from the Duchess

50 Tea Recipes from the Duchess

Girl reincarnates as this other girl who was a doormat. Now this girl uses her new life to make a tea business and creates revolutionary snacks. WHolesome story

20 The Villainess Turns the Hourglass

The Villainess Turns the Hourglass

❇️

Villainess goes back in time to change her actions so she doesn’t get killed. This one is really good, the MC is cunning, not to mention the art style is lovely.

21 Just Leave Me Be

Just Leave Me Be

So this girl is actually a replacement for this duke’s daughter, since they look alike. She gets killed by the duke and revives. 

22 Queen in the Shadows

Queen in the Shadows

This girl is the “fake” princess and she got killed after the real one came back. She then uses this new life to survive, she acts like a naive, dumb girl but is actually quite cunning.

23 I Am the Real One

I Am the Real One

This girl was killed after everyone thought she was the fake daughter, but she was actually the real daughter. She uses this new life to survive and gain allies (friends).

24 Flirting with The Villain's Dad

Flirting with The Villain's Dad

Girl reincarnates as this person who dies in her novel. Basically: a side character. She doesn’t want the villain to ruin the story so she seduces his father so the villain never gets created.

25 I Became the Villain's Mother

I Became the Villain's Mother

Girl gets reincarnated as the mother of the villain. She doesn’t want the villain to be evil so she becomes a good mother so the child villain grows up to be a good boy.

26 Lady Baby

Lady Baby

Girl’s family all died and she wants to find the murder. She goes back in time to where she is a baby, slowly she will enjoy her youth and find the killer. Great art in this one

27 The Fantasie of a Stepmother

The Fantasie of a Stepmother

❇️

So this young mom had a really hard time taking care of these kids, and she got depressed. She went back in time and decided that she’ll try harder to be a nice mom. A bit on the physiologic side, but the art is STUNNING! 

(THIS STORY IS SO GOOD, I NEED TO REWRITE THIS SOON, I'll do it after I reread the story again).

28 The Monstrous Duke's Adopted Daughter

The Monstrous Duke's Adopted Daughter

❇️

So our main character is getting abused so she finds this really badass noble woman to adopt her. It takes a long time for her to be an official daughter, but when she does, the family is just so loving. A very wholesome manhwa fitting of our lovely protagonist. The main character, Leslie, isn’t just a damsel in distress. She has a unique ability and she’s also smart.

29 The Twins' New Life

The Twins' New Life

This brother and sister pair died and reincarnated as illegitimate twin children of the emperor or something. They are discriminated against A LOT. This story will make you pissed off because of all the nobles, it’ll be so satisfying when the main characters get respect.

30 A Common Story of a Lady's New Life

A Common Story of a Lady's New Life

So this girl gets reincarnated as this other girl and she is the fiancé of this Duke. So the duke has a good friend and the MC thinks she’s his girlfriend or something. (Obviously that’s just a misunderstanding, and the girl is super badass too). This manhwa has some beautiful artwork, but it’s a bit slow for me right now.

31 The Heroine of Drayfox

The Heroine of Drayfox

Girl dies and reincarnates as this girl, and also she’s super OP with magic and stuff because many spirits have her blessings. Also the art is ok for me, not the best, but could be worse.

32 The Villainess Lives Again

The Villainess Lives Again

So we got our “villainess” here who did a lot of bad stuff and basically got her limbs and tongue cut off (oh dang). She meets a nice dude and then she time travels using this magic circle thing. And yeah, she’s cunning which I love in a protagonist.

33 Lady Chef Royale

Lady Chef Royale

Chef girl gets hit by truck-kun and reincarnates as this girl who did a suicide attempt because her family didn’t like her. This story sorta revolves around cooking and since this girl was a chef in her past life, she can use her skills here.

34 The Golden-Haired Summoner

The Golden-Haired Summoner

❇️

Girl dies in fire and reincarnates as a noble. In her past life, she did a lot of homework in stuff and so she wants to live an easy life in her second life. A lot of magical stuff and the art is quite vibrant, which I love. 

35 The Soulless Duchess

The Soulless Duchess

Girl used to really like this prince and did whatever she could to help him. She ended up dying after the prince used her to her limits. She time travels and gets with another guy so she doesn’t die. Very cute story, the main character is pretty badass too. The art is also satisfactory.

36 Harley Takes the House

Harley Takes the House

So this girl looks just like this family’s dead daughter and so she’s now a replacement. Her brothers hate her, of course, because she’s NOT their dead sister. But eventually, they warm up to her.

37 A Wicked Tale of Cinderella's Stepmom

A Wicked Tale of Cinderella's Stepmom

Girl reincarnates as the step mother from Cinderella. Now she’s gonna treat Cinderella nicely.

38 Light and Shadow

Light and Shadow

Girl gets married to this dude and they develop a nice relationship, but there’s more to that. Our female MC happens to be a badass, but I can’t reveal too much because spoilers. A pretty good story, ends quickly though.

39 Love Quest for a Servant Girl

Love Quest for a Servant Girl

😡 Girl gets reincarnated into this TL novel with a lot of sexual stuff, yeah, that’s about it. Personally it got a bit boring for me, but hey, it’s ok

40 They Only Remembered Her

They Only Remembered Her

❇️

Girl knight retires and lives a normal life taking care of her brother and stuff. She thought nobody would remember a woman from war, but it turns out she has a whole harem.

There really isn't a main plot that goes into this manhwa, the main character just lives her life and solves her family problems. It's an easy read.

41 I Fell into a Reverse Harem Game!

I Fell into a Reverse Harem Game!

Girl gets reincarnated as a villainess in this sexy harem game, but she can see the protagonist’s choices in game. Pretty interesting story.

42 The Knight and Her Emperor

The Knight and Her Emperor

Hardworking girl becomes a knight, oh yeah she betrays her country because her family and fellow knights treated her like trash. A really cute story.

43 Crimson Karma

Crimson Karma

A badass girl gets reincarnated as a girl and so she uses this girl’s body to become badass again. Basically, it’s just about the main character being extremely badass, yeah.

44 I Belong to House Castielo

I Belong to House Castielo

😡 11 year old remembers her past life as a 23 year old, but for some reason she’s really stupid..? This story is just your typical “daddy’s girl” story. It was kinda boring, but hey, you might like it.

45 Daughter of the Emperor

Daughter of the Emperor

😡 Girl gets reincarnated as a baby and her dad is some tyrant. Pretty simple plot line of the dad and the girl developing a cute relationship. The problem is that this manhwa is so long, yet the setting stays the same throughout the story. There isn’t much besides the dad-daughter relationship. Basically, it’s pretty boring. But the recent chapters have gotten better, but the 100 chapters in between are sort of meaningless. But hey, you might like it.

46 The Beloved Little Princess

The Beloved Little Princess

Really OP mage gets reincarnated as this baby, and the baby is super cute. Basically just about a girl and her family having a cute relationship, but since she was once an OP mage, she might become one again. It’s still kinda early to judge if it’s good or not, but hey, give it a go.

47 When the Villainess is in Love

When the Villainess is in Love

Girl reincarnates as the villainess from her novel. In this novel, basically everyone dies except the ML and the FL. She wants to meet all her favorite side characters. The art in this one is nice, the hair is detailed as heck.

48 The Rebirth of a Tyrannical Empress

The Rebirth of a Tyrannical Empress

Girl gets reincarnated as this badass empress from her favorite novel. However, according to her novel, she is going to get killed in 3 days because she was a bad empress. She must become a good empress so she can survive!

49 The Adventures of a Demon King's Daughter

The Adventures of a Demon King's Daughter

Really unfortunate girl (got abused and is ugly) gets reincarnated as the demon king’s daughter. Pretty self-explanatory. 

50 Daughter of the Archmage

Daughter of the Archmage

Girl who got neglected goes to her biological father, a very OP Mage dude. So far just cute things happening.
