having the emperor of japan jealous over you? you bastard

Love it, thanks for the hardwork!

A harem? In my Palace Meidi?

Damn it author. Why do you do this to me. Now I can't decided who he should marry. Also that dog is the best. 

(...) If we consider some historical accuracy to the manga, we can conclude that in this universe, princess Akiko (born August 3, 1881, died September 6, 1883) survived instead of his actual son Yoshihito, who was to become the Taishou-tennou.
Since we learn that

Seems we have to wait a little longer to see how much historical accuracy is in this manga and where it's supposed to be set...

(...) I had just assumed she was making all of the characters up, since I knew that there had never been a female emperor. (...)

 
Not in the modern era, but "there have never been" is a bit too strong a turn of phrase.  There are eight Empresses in the Wikipedia list of Emperors of Japan, the last of them being Go-Sakuramachi, who reigned in the 18th Century (1762–1771).

vaguely related sort of, may be worth a read who knows

Hmm, so we know that Arthur is the corresponding 3rd prince of GB in the story(courtesy to DeadGuyKai for the info).

Wow! I hadn't realized how much of a real alternate history this was. I should have known, though. The mangaka posts a lot of different research on twitter. I knew that she was drawing the palace based on real photographs of the Tokyo Imperial Palace during that time. I had just assumed she was making all of the characters up, since I knew that there had never been a female emperor. 

 

I found this drawing of Prince Arthur of Connaught visiting Japan in 1906, as part of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance. This looks a lot like the scene in Chapter 8. Interesting.

Welp, now we know what Misuno's next job title is gonna be.

This chapter left me cold...

"England's Third Prince, Prince Connaught"  Yo Author I like you but Connaught aint an English Given name it's the name of a Province in Ireland.  Just go with William man, maybe throw in a Richard or a Charles.

 

Or make Connaught the Surname to establish that in addition to there being a different Royal Dynasty of Japan that there's also been some Succession Wackiness going on in the rest of the World with Britain being formed by an Irish Dynasty instead of the Scottish House of Stuart.

 

Though the only ATL Ruling Dynasty of England I will personally accept is the Glorious House of Habsburg.

Queen Victoria's 3rd son Arthur had the title Duke of Connaught.  He would therefore sometimes be referred to simply as "Connaught".

The problem isn't that Connaught isn't an English name, but that it isn't a German name. The royal family of England is nothing more but a side subsidary of the German royal House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, which belongs to the House of Wittich.

Spoiler

Around 1841 Eduard VII [first House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha king] became the King of Britain, and reigned until his death 1910, which covers most of the Meiji era (1867-1912). Btw, his children had weird names stemming from German over French and Latin to Greek (everyone had 4 different names from different languages @.@), so maybe that name isn't that weird at all...

We had thought he might be named after the Connaught Hotel in London. 

 

So far it is interesting, the characters are likable.

 

I just hope this doesn't turn into some of these melodramatic shoujo manga.

 

Kuze Banko is normally a josei mangaka, so she should keep the drama to a reasonable level. :)

I Connaught think of a better name for a Third Prince. Also who are you to say it Connaught be an English Given name?

Misono looked rather handsome in that last page!

This story is beautiful.

give me more chapters

you won't like when I'm angry

flying table flip

TUNCH ME MISONO!!!! 

Hah this man is quite comfortable with himself, he just realized that for 6 years his school "friends" let him win and he's cool as a cucumber.

 

Of course he is, he realises he's as much a prisoner of his position as they were, so he doesn't hold it against them.

 

On the contrary, he holds it against Misono that he doesn't do this.

What exactly is Miya's position? Is he a relative of the emperor or what?

The Miya family seems to go by the titles of Imperial Prince/Princess (内親王殿下/内親王) in chapter 5, so I think they are of royal blood, though I'm not sure how closely they are related to Akiko. He is probably in line for the throne if something happens to Akiko and her brother. So there's a reason she has to be polite to him.

misono go kill that fcker and wash his head in dat pond
