Apparently, the Rebel Princess was a cdrama that was originally called the Monarch Industry.
This cdrama highlights the budding romance of a spoiled princess and a general from humble beginnings.
With a historical backdrop of politics and intrigue. There’s also a novel that the show is loosely based off of.
Check out the synopsis below!
One is a spoiled noblewoman because of her birth and background.
The other is a powerful but low-born general.
Despite coming from different backgrounds, the two form a tight bond as they attempt to navigate power struggles.
During the Cheng dynasty as internal and external forces are at work to bring the realm to its knees.
How will this power couple fare when they also realize the Imperial family has no plans of letting them rise to power?
A few more new faces that I don’t recognize! But I’m interested in the growth of the princess character.
I have heard various rumors that various netizens are upset by the casting of the main female lead.
Zhang Zi Yi.
Because she’s too old to be playing the 15yr princess? However, there’s also potential issues if you change actresses when the characters grow and mature in the story.
Based on the trailer and the vibes I got from Zhang Zi Yi, I don’t think she’s too old to play the youthful character part.
As the makeup artist did their job really well.
I think Zhang Zi Yi’s skills will shine when she plays the mature princess. And that’s when people will judge if the director chose correctly.
The costumes and backdrop look really good and keeps reminding me why I prefer historical cdramas! ^^
I bet this was a high budget production.
And at 68 episodes, I hope we are in for a treat! (It’s been a while since I’ve watched something good around this length, The Story of Minglan was one).
Would you be interested in checking out the Rebel Princess?

What a beautiful drama.
I love the leading man. He’s such great looking man and actor. His voice, beuatiful.
No one would have played a better part than him
Thanks for the comment! I agree! The actor who plays the male lead was definitely a good choice!
This is one of the best c-dramas i have ever watched. Can ‘t believe the actress zhang ziyi is 41 years old. Zhou yiwei has also done a great job. This drama made me feel really engaged. Sometimes also makes me feel bad for being single !!
Hello! Sorry to intrude …. but I find this Drama Series of The Rebel Princess very interesting! I binged watched Episode 1-45 in 3 days! And would really like to finish it, but would need to know how the find the version with English Subtitles? I watch it in Youtube. The lead Actors —Zhang Ziyi and Zhou Yiwei quite good. Their screen chemistry is very believable. I love the costumes and the fighting scenes of Zhou Yiwei —– very graceful movements!
Appreciate your help in finding the versions with English Subtitles soon. Thank you!
Wow that’s a crazy amount of binge watching!!! I believe this show is not completely released yet so both Viki and youtube won’t have all the episodes English subbed yet
Oh my, that’s sad! How long do you think is the wait? Im waiting for Episode 46 and up. Thank you!
I don’t think you have to wait too long? More episodes have come out recently
Hi Coco! Do you know where/how I can purchase all 68 Episodes with English Subtitles? Or buy the book Emperors Conquest by Mei Yu Zhe. Thank you!
You can download it at https://dramanice.so/ – already subbed up to Ep. 49 and I know they are getting them out very quickly so won’t have to wait long for the rest.
Noted and will do so!
All 68 Eps aren’t out yet as they are up to Ep 57. Not long now, I was so eager to see more, I went ahead and watched the ones with no subs…lol. I am addicted to this fabulous drama.
Hi Eloisa, you can purchase the novel from Taobao, the novel name in Chinese is: 帝王业
Noted & thank you, Coco! I hope they have an English version too. Sorry I should have said earlier, I’m a Filipina and don’t understand Chinese. But I just got so interested in this film with all the intrigues and twists of the storyline so I truly want to know what happens in the end! Trust you understand and thank you!
No problem, completely understand! I think there’s a small group working on translating the novel but they haven’t updated since 2020…
Hopefully another group will pick it up soon!
Good to know and thank you, Coco!
Where can I find this novel with english translation?
Hi Jaya, thanks for the comment! You can find fan translations here: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/emperors-conquest/
but it’s been awhile since anyone has updated it. I believe you can find the raws online and try to read them with machine translations (it’s just not the same though).
Hopefully someone will pick up translating this novel soon!
Viki has English subtitles up to ep 34.
currently up to ep 51 has been released.
this gives a little hint of what’s ahead from ep 51 onwards
Noted and thank you, BettsBB!
Same with me, this is better than the more popular c dramas w the younger actors. both lead actors here displayed great acting. i like it that the male lead is not a perfect looking man – but nonetheless he is oozing with charima.
I thought the casting for the male lead was just on point! You don’t want a perfect looking man for someone who’s a general fighting for the country. That wouldn’t make much sense. How many guys will you find that is good-looking, yet can command such a powerful presence. While showing off charisma?
