“Marianne-sama is here.”

At first, they doubted the person who had been brought in by the soldier.

That this girl who wore muddy clothes with only one shoe intact and messy hair was Marianne.

Although Leticia had participated in the meeting, Marianne was nowhere to be seen.

Luka had finally remembered the existence of Marianne.

Duke Hydorosa reflexively began to shriek.

“Are- are you Marianne?”

Duke Hydorosa’s voice began to sound timid.

“What?”

Marianne looked at Duke Hydorosa absent-mindedly.

“Why do you look like this? What has the Royal Palace been doing to you?”

Duke Hydorosa barked at the King and the Prince.

“The Royal Palace? Marianne-sama is no longer a Royalty, right? We did not have any responsibility to look after such troublesome things.”

Julius was indifferent.

Marianne could not decide whether she wanted to refute or remain silent.

“Y- You should have looked after Marianne in the Royal Palace–”

Duke Hydorosa gazed over Marchioness Hydorosa with an incredulous look on his face.

“I thought that she was here, though–”

Marchioness Hydorosa began to show a sad expression.

However, in her heart, she began to snicker as she managed to exact her revenge on Marianne.

To her, Marianne was nothing but a tool.
——-

“Marchioness Hydorosa, I have something that I want to ask you.”

“W- What?”

“Marianne-sama’s hair color is not gold, right?”

Everyone eyes began to gather towards Marianne’s hair.

When they looked at it closely, the part near the root looked like brown-colored hair.

“W-What?”

Marianne’s mother began to look flustered.

She had always reminded Marianne to dye her hair.

However, it seemed that due to the zeal that came from living with the Prince, she had forgotten about it.

“Hair-dying? Is that a magic?”

Duke Hydorosa knew that there was no such magic, so he looked at Julius as if he was a stupid person.

“No, it is probably from sake?”

“Sake?”

“It seemed that Marianne-sama had frequently ordered alcoholic drinks. It was reported that she brought it into the bathroom every single time.”

Hearing that, Marianne’s mother clicked her tongue.

Duke Hydorosa, who was beside her, looked at her stupidly.

“So what? Is it a problem if Marianne is not a blonde?”

Marianne’s mother had dyed her hair so that the secret that she had replaced Leticia would not be revealed.

She realized that it was no longer a problem if they knew that Marianne had dyed her hair, since everyone was already aware that Marianne was not the original daughter of Duke Diogenes.

However, all the Royal Family members began to look pale.

“Duke Hydorosa, you did not dye your hair, right?”

“Of course not!”

Duke Hydorosa’s hair was in the color of dull blond.

Even though it was not as brilliant as the Royal Family, it still contained strands of gold.

“That is why I dyed it. This type of discrimination should not happen. It is alright to talk about it.”

The King sent a signal to Julius, who had no choice but to assent to it.

———-

The story brought by Julius shook both Duke Hydorosa and his wife.

This generation of The Royal Family who had blonde-colored hair;

The King, Prince Daniel, and Leticia.

And Marianne had dyed her hair to fit in accordingly.

Since she was the daughter of Duke Hydorosa, it was not weird for her to have similar brown hair to mother.

But the Royal Family knew.

This was not the case.

Blonde hair was not merely an inheritance.

The magical power in one’s body influenced the hair, thus turning it into gold.

According to some families, a blue magical power was handed down within the family instead of a gold one.

Julius’s family was one of those cases.

Both Julius and his father have a bluish hair.

Duke Hydorosa possessed magical power, so it was quite strange if Marianne did not possess any of it.

The brown-colored hair should not have appeared in a family who possessed even a little bit of magical power.
———-

“It- it cannot be.”

Blood seemed to drain from Duke Hydorosa’s face.

“L- that is a lie, such thing. Such a thing is a lie!”

“In additional report, several entertainers who had been invited to perform in the Duke Diogenes’ residence have testified their relationship with both the Marchioness and Marianne-sama.”

When the story of Marianne being selected as the fiancée of Prince Daniel, the investigation of Marianne’s past behavior had also surfaced.

That’s why Julius had changed the direction of his investigation from Leticia towards Marianne, who was now the fiancée of the Prince.

That was how he dug up the information on Marianne’s mother one after another.

The evidence had been confirmed, so no one was able to utter a single word after that.

It was bad not to give up at this point, except for that woman.

  1. Yuck….. What the actual fck?!! Ain’t that mother and daughter pair totally whores?? Fcking… What. Completely turned into another bullshitness… I’m currently asking their level of stupidity…. Just… How…

    Or did I misinterprete it.

    “In additional report, several entertainers who had been invited to perform in the Duke Diogenes’ residence have testified their relationship with both the Marchioness and Marianne-sama.”

    Both the mother daughter pair did xx with some entertainers.??

    1. @phantomhive17 no they are witnesses to Marianne treating her mother terribly. The mother always wished to use her daughter as a tool so she was getting fed up with being treated so shabby by her own daughter. She’s (marianne’s mother) using this meeting to get back at her (Marianne). While Marianne has always thought she was far better than her own mother and simply wished to gain power, riches, and her man by stepping all over others. Actually I find both of them terrible in that they both think they’re victims but they can’t live without hurting/looking down on someone/something.

      1. Oooh… Then I just cannot understand at how Mariane’s hair color is brown? It was explained that it was impossible for someone who has the least bit of magic to birth on someone without a magic. But then, I was sure I read a part where Marriane used wind magic on herself and blamed it on Leticia… Ugh.. It’s confusing me … Or is it that her agic is so low, since it was also explained that the quality of magic could be seen on the hair color?

      2. @phantomhive17 she inherited the color of her technically from her mother. However, it is also symbolic of how much magical power you have – which in her case it should be next to nothing. A death nail in a place where magical might is everything. That’s why it’s a little weird that she could use wind magic to harm herself to blame Letitia….

      3. Wait a second here. Her mom is a lower noble presumably without magic power or a small amount. If Marianne’s father was Duke Hydorosa, then she would have blonde hair due to getting her magic power from him. Since we know Marianne does have magic power and doesn’t have blonde hair, then the simplest explanation is that her father is someone else. I have no idea if that’s actually what the author is going for, and given how convoluted this series has been, I’m probably wrong.

      4. @indomnianoodles: You should change the translation to
        “…testified about the relationship between the marchioness and Marianne-san.”

  2. So Marianne is the child of a servant and a performer. Her mother was elevated to the rank of a Duchess by Duke Diogenes so she could take care of his daughter, but instead had relationships with countless males and replaced his daughter with her own..

    Btw, it was previously stated that Leticia had silver hair. Now it said her hair is golden blond?

    1. @DOH I really think that Marianne is the daughter of Duke Hydrosa but they were shocked that she has zero magical power which she is supposed to inherit from her father. Remember magical might to power the kingdom is all important.

  3. Thank you for the chapter and please add an updated relation ship chart which was removed at the end of chapter 17 or the beginning of chapter 18 thank you.

  4. Waaa
    What a confusion!
    I wonder why Mariane’s hair is brown even though she is capable of using magic, maybe even more than Leticia?
    And I’m also curious about that stalker, was he asked by the duke Diogenes to look after Leticia or………. who is he?
    At this rate Leticia will become the ruler and the country will be changed to be less dependant on magic.
    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. The stalker is probably the scholar branch, leticia probably has enough magical power to power the machines by herself. Which would explain the collar and all the guards.

      The collar probably sucks out her magic power without her noticing, leaving her with no power.

      Which would explain why the king wants leticia to be part of the family, she most likely has a monsterous amount.

      The duke not caring for leticia would never assign guards for her.

  6. Reading the comments I’m now getting slightly confused. Now just to get some facts straight correct me if I’m wrong.
    Marianne is and always has been known to have very little magic. I could be remembering wrong but I remember a Marianne pov in which she says she in fact has magic but has been told to hide the fact.
    Leticia on the other hand has a lot of magic and that was the reason the king wanted her for the prince.

    Honestly it sound more and more like Leticia will inherit the throne as the prince doesn’t have what it takes and she now is a royal.

  7. Thanks for the chapters!!!! However, no matter how I read the ending, the wording makes it sound as if both Marianne and her mother were calling the entertainers. Are we sure that Marianne hasn’t been calling or screwing the male entertainers, like her mom?

    As for the mother herself, I truly underestimated how both manipulative and stupid she was. I knew she was ambitious despite being a mere baron or servant that started as the caretaker of an elderly. However, I never guessed that she was so idiotic and loose in principle that she would call entertainers to her husband’s house right after marriage, and as far as I know, she had no allies or servants to take to that household, so it was obvious that all her deeds were probably known from the get go.

    To make matters worse, she decided to have even more lovers by cheating with an idiotic duke and pretending that she was the victim. She even ended up having a child with a (so-far) unknown father. Now, Marianne is the child of a servant and unknown entertaining, not bearing an ounce of royal or noble bloodline.

    ………Sigh, I am honestly shocked that the mother had the audacity to want her child to marry the prince. If she didn’t cheat on both the Royalty and Duke (and then got caught in front of an audience), she would have some credibility and could probably make due in life as long as she kept herself in bounds…… I mean, I am all up for a Cinderella story, but the daughter at least needs to have some virtue and a good heart.
