    So. Gonna re-read this one for the 4th time, now with account. It's a great novel, however, I suggest for all non Europeans to keep a 1500 Europe map at hand. Also yes there is *nc*st and yes the Mc is a little racist. HOWEVER, for some of the main racist things, you should just know that uniting humanity is impossible because Humans will always divide into two groups if there are none. So it's better to have 5 countries that compete than 1 big one that collapses from the inside (looking at you there USA), And also that many of the modern "nice" politics don't work in the long run. Now back to the actual racism, the Author works a lot with the concept of "Power corrupts". This is very clear throughout the book. He also made clear (on discord) that the racist stuff isn't completely his opinion but is supposed to be from his body's original inhabitants side, which is logical for a 1500's noble. Overall it's a great book, for people who think. To people disliking, keep rejecting logic 😁

    Nah, bro, the author needs a special place reserved in hell. MC is flirting with 13 or 14, which is weird if that isn't bad enough, The author made Jeanne d'Arc a s*ssy, like, hey man it isn't difficult to add her to the harem. 😭

    The whole chalice of the skull was edgy nd, I don't think any person from the modern age would have such a barbaric idea. I don't like the whole eye patch thing, but I guess it's fine...author preferences.

    Despite the many flaws of this novel; the constant xenophobia, the racism and the *nc*st this still managed to be one of the better written novels on the site, IF you manage to look past it. To a fellow reader looking to pick this up I would absolutely recommend it if you want a kingdom building power fantasy novel. If thats not your cup of tea and you think this will change your opinion... it probably wont... it might even make it worse.Also ignoring the morality the relationships are very well written so props to the author for that.

    If racism and xenophobia have a child, it would be this novel xD

    After 1 week of reading, I've finally finished it. Here's my review for it. The story was very good. It was focus on Kingdom Building. There is sm*t which was the only thing that make me lower my rating for this. But. I'm not lying when I say this, the relationship, interactions between Berengar and his harem was the thing that kept me reading into this. The story was great but it will get boring after 500 chapters without some interesting stuff. The writing style was also great but what also lower my rating for this was the Author putting minor spoilers in the last paragraph of chapters but not ganna lie, it didn't bother me much. Also, there is some inc*st here so be aware of that if your going to read (but not a heavy one, just between cousins like in the old Europe). Definitely recommended if you want some heavily focused Kingdom Building. 4/5 - Recommended

      I agree with everything except the cousin part - I'm in the authors discord, she is the Mcs actual sister, sieghars also made this pretty clear later on, he just lied so they would get together

    I liked the ending, don’t think the author intended for it to be that message but it ended up being the perfect example of power corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts. He started not to bad in the beginning, all things considered, but as the novel progressed he became more paranoid, obsessed, and an overall POS, eventually culminating in the absolute mess he became. Maybe a happy ending for him but I just see a world the works through genocide, cultural extermination and racial discrimination, and those things never last.
