duke’s daughter knight captain 2

Project looking for a nice home ;v; If you’re a translator, then please consider it.

Anyways, Ch2! Why am I releasing so soon? Well, I’m just releasing as I finish. This took me… Maybe an hour or two? Well, hopefully the faster I release, the more attention this will garner and hopefully attract a good translator to pick up this series. 😀

Continuing on, it’s the continuation of the evening party!

Mayhem of the Evening Party

「Wi-Wilhelm Aibringer, you say……?」


「Carol……You, how old that person is……Are you saying this while knowing?」

To my Father’s confirmation, I nodded.

Such a thing, I am aware 100%. Since the beginning, Wilhelm-sama has been an acquaintance of my Grandfather, and I’ve received his affections since I was young.

As I am currently 16 years old, the age difference would be 46 years.

「Of course, Father. In spite of all that, I am asking.」

「……He’s much older than I am, and is the same age as my Father. Even for a Duke’s daughter to be marrying in, that age difference is unheard of.」

Saying so, Father grimaced. Then, he glanced at Wilhelm-sama who was exchanging pleasantries.

And, he lightly sighed.

「This isn’t really a matter I can agree to……」

「But Father, it’s not likely for marriage proposals to come towards me anymore. Since His Highness said that much, even going as far to break off the engagement personally, there will be no more suitable candidates. I probably can’t attend the academy anymore either……」

That was my only regret. If possible, I wanted to graduate from the academy. Even though I still had a lot of things I wanted to study.

But judging by His Highness Reyford-sama’s attitude, he and……What was her name again? I forgot. Saying not to appear before him and what’s-her-name in such a blaming manner, as if I could continue to attend school.

The most profitable plan for the current status quo was to immediately become independent and drop out of school. Then, to find a good house that wouldn’t mind to take me in as a bride.

I think Wilhelm-sama fits all those requirements though.

「But, why does Carol, with Knight Captain Wilhelm……」

But with a “hah,” Father’s eyes opened wide.

Then, as if he understood everything, he looked at me. It seems like he suddenly had a spark of inspiration.

「……I see, Carol. So you meant it that way.」


「As expected of my daughter, I want to praise you. When you mentioned wanting to wed Wilhelm-dono, I doubted your sanity.」

While laughing “kuku,” a strange, villainous smile floated onto Father’s face.

However, it seems that Father has taken a positive approach to my marriage with Wilhelm-sama. I completely don’t grasp what his intention is though.

While meekly listening to Father’s talk, I doubted his character.


「Don’t worry, Carol. I will definitely tie an engagement between you and Wilhelm-dono. What, I just have to play some of the cards in my hand.」

「……I understand.」

Father was magnificently misunderstanding, but since it was heading towards a situation that was convenient for me, then it was fine.

It seems as if he didn’t think that I really yearned for Wilhelm-sama, but it was meaningless if I carelessly resolved his misunderstanding.

「Well then Carol, you return to the mansion first. Leave the rest to your Father.」

「I understand, Father.」

If he says to leave it to him, then I will grandly entrust this to him.

Actually, if I interposed unskillfully, then I would say needless things. If possible then just like this and without a fuss, it’s best to leave it to Father to proceed as planned.

Well then――And, just as I was withdrawing from the evening party.

「W-wait! Carol!」

From behind, an urgent voice called to stop me.

There weren’t many who addressed me by my first name「Carol.」Specifically speaking, they were my family and my fiancé――No, my former fiancé now. Only Reyford-sama.

And, the ones attending this evening party were my Father and I alone. Naturally, I knew who that voice belonged to.

「……Do you need something from my daughter, Your Highness?」

But towards His Highness who stopped me in that way, my Father stood in front of his path.

Just before, didn’t you just declare「Never show yourself before me again!」? Why are you coming to me yourself?

「Kuh……Duke Ambrose, I’m in a hurry. I must get Carol to……」

「Whose mouth is saying that, when you arbitrarily broke off your engagement with my daughter right in front of her parent.」


For some reason, His Highness had gotten in an argument with Father. Honestly, I don’t understand why he came here in this manner.

It seems as if he has business with me, though.

「I apologize, Giliam. I command you.」

But from even further behind, a solemn tone of voice resounded.

The same age as my Father, but a man with far more dignity than my Father. Entering the confusion was not only His Highness, but the surrounding nobles as well. Because primarily, he didn’t stand on the same stage as the other nobles, and he was usually was present on his throne overlooking the festivities, but now he was here. Father wasn’t perturbed, however.

That was――the King.

In regards to Fureakisuta Country, he had the highest amount of authority and was His Highness Reyford’s father.

The King of this country――Galius el Fureakisuta.

「Why your Majesty, without a word of greeting, I’ve been rude.」

「It’s fine. Just before, I’ve heard the circumstances from this fool. Good grief……Since he was the sole Prince, I may have spoiled him a little too much. I apologize, Giliam.」

「An apology is unnecessary. It’s already a closed matter. Besides, I think the one who’s apologizing and the one who’s being apologized to is incorrect.」


Even though he was facing the King, I didn’t see a shred of fear coming from Father.

In fact, more so than the King, the one with the self-important air was Father.

「But Father! Without a doubt, towards Mary, Carol tried to……!」

「Where is the evidence for that. Saying such things that someone can’t confirm whether truth or not, like being pushed from the stairs today, don’t easily believe such things. No matter how I look at you, you’re just a fool driven mad by a woman’s wiles.」

「No way! Father!」

「First, apologize to Carol. You can speak afterward.」

Saying “guh,” His Highness Reyford gritted his teeth.

As for me, the conversation from before was plenty. Whether it was an apology or not, it was my true feelings that I didn’t want to listen to His Highness’ words anymore.

Furthermore, that face.

No matter how I think about it, I can’t assent to this. He was simply apologizing as he had no choice because His Majesty the King told him to, but his pride wouldn’t allow it, so he was distressed.

Such an apology, there’s no meaning in receiving it.

「Well then, Father, I will be returning.」

「Aah, Carol. Be careful on your way back.」


「Wa-wait– stop Carol!」

How noisy, since before.

Since before going “CarolCarol” as if he were still my fiancé, I wish he wouldn’t address me in such a way. There’s an extent to how shameless you can be.

Should I just refuse him completely?――Yes, just as I was thinking that, at that time.

「Why does His Highness have to apologize! The one in the wrong here is you isn’t it, daughter of Duke Ambrose!」

A heart filled with anger, she pointed a finger towards me.

……Ummm, who was this again?

I don’t know her name, but the girl His Highness Reyford was infatuated with was standing there.

<< Previous | Directory | Next >>


The name “Anburausu” has been changed to Ambrose! Thanks for the suggestion, Amaryllis and Tina!

I left some intangible things untranslated (romaji) like when her dad goes “kuku” or goes “aah” and stuff. If you really don’t get it, then you can look below.

「……I see, Carol. So you meant it that way.」

  • Carol saying “haa” can be equivalent to “okay???” like when someone is confused, or when they don’t understand and simply given up on trying to.

「Aah, Carol. Be careful on your way back.」

  • “Aah” here is more of a confirmation, like when someone grunts in response (only it’s Aah)

If there’s anything you don’t understand I’ll be happy to give my interpretation (as I’m not 100% confident in my accuracy, so just interpretation).

Also, I still need name suggests for Fureakisuta… What could that even romanize into?

…I had something else I wanted to ask too, but I forgot what it was. Darn. Oh well. Hope you enjoyed! Spread the word if you can. ;v;

  1. my, that idiot prince who gets led around by his **** and that *itch is pissing me off. It reminds me of the other Duke’s daughter novel. I hope Carol show’s them who’s da boss. XD

    1. It seems very likely.

      Seeing that Carol’s never seen or interacted with her before, I don’t know how she could think that Carol was malicious enough to commit such atrocities towards her.

      It’s either she’s a scheming wench, or, she’s really, REALLY stupid. In fact, I think it’s both lol.

    1. This intreages me also. Maybe the knight captain comes from a side arm of the royalty or he holds actually lands that if combined with the dukes lands can put the royal power under pressure(after all he is expected to die rather soon considering the live expectancy of these days and she would be the mother of the sole heir).


  2. Ah. So it clearly is the stupid girl who deliberately broke up Carol and the Prince.

    But that’s perfectly ok. Carol’s gonna get her a real man. …Or so the title tells me.

    Thanks again for the chapter. Looking forward to how this will unfold. I really do hope they have a couple of kids in the end though; something about an older male happily surrounded by his young wife and children is just so damn heartwarming. Moreso if the giant is holding the youngest himself.

  3. Thank you so much for your translation. I do wish you to continue taking up this project since it’s interesting story.

    The plot is quite different from other “duke’s daughter” story. Especially with a huge age different from both of main leads.


  4. please continue the translation because the tale is so interestin this tape of tale make me wish to knows Japanese or Korean so I could translate al this interestin tales, but I only manage english in a normal level and only in listening and reading but my writhin is truly patetic.I continue to read this series until the end(its interestin the age gap of 46 years)


  5. Perhaps daddy thought Carol is trying to gain knight captain influence and connection. He’s freaking old, so he probably know lots of other old noble while he also likely to train many high ranking knight.

  6. Ah, this chapter just makes my laugh at the prince’s stupidity. To be young and infatuated. I was one, but never the other 😛


  7. the stupid prince is going to realize the error of his ways very soon, but he will also realize that he was too late and she is already going to be with someone else. Then any future appearance will be him trying to win Carol back, but failing since Carol loves the dandy knight captain.
    Does this seem like an accurate prediction? Seem like the best move for the author to make, if I were him/her that would be my plan.

  8. thanks a lot—!
    -eagerly shoves ice-cream cakes into your hands- keep translating, please keep translating—!
    lol, carol’s just using her father’s misunerstanding to her advantage, though i don’t really understand what her father’s thinking, but i get the general idea.
    ah—! king, you raised your son stupidly! ooh! carol’s father is protective! i like it, i like it! don’t bow down to the king, especially after what he had done to your daughter, carol’s father! bah! that prince needs to be beaten up! ew, mary, ew!


    1. “ew, mary, ew!”

      My thoughts exactly, lol xD

      Glad you’re enjoying it~ I’ll try translating a few more chapters, but I’ll probably stop after 9 since it’s a cliff and I feel like it’s a good place to stop lol.

      Thanks for the virtual icecream~ I’m hungry… ;-;


      1. yeah—! Mary’s really annoying!
        it really has potential! such a large age gap is pretty rare, but all that matters are the feelings and sincerity of the two people in the relationship—! lol, well, please go and translate as far as you can!

        eh! eat proper food before eating the ice-cream cakes, ok—!


      1. will you give it to us or let us burn in agony while waiting for someone to pick the novel? 😀


  9. I do not like misunderstandings when it comes to love. Love is a fickle thing and if someone has a misunderstand it needs to be cleared up asap or it can get extremely ugly. Some people think it is comedic while I personally see it as the author failing to write a love story, and instead chooses to write comedy as a shield for his own inept writing.


    1. You can’t clear up misunderstandings if the person doesn’t listen.

      The father clearly doesn’t care further for his daughters opinion.

      People in todays standard also have that issue. Well not in a comedic sense but a stubborn and easily misunderstands others.

      Either way its not all that bad compared to other novels that bring comedy (not really) and misunderstandings to a level where you wish it never existed.


    2. Do you mean a misunderstanding from the Prince or from Carol’s father?

      From the Prince, there was never love there in the first place. Also, he’s just a plain douche, and even if Carol did try to clear up the misunderstanding, he wouldn’t have listened. Because he’s a douche. Well, this works out in Carol’s favor though, as she’s never wanted to marry him in the first place.

      As for her Father, he’s overestimating her, so think of it as loving his child enough to think she’s capable of doing amazing things. He doesn’t realize that she purely loves Wilhelm, rather, he thinks she’s scheming and looking at a bigger picture. Even though she’s still just a child pretty much at age 16 and still hasn’t gotten a handle on all those political behind-the-scene action that all the nobles go through.

      Carol is quite honest and straight forward as a character though, so I doubt there’ll be very much misunderstandings to be resolved between her and Wilhelm. If anything, it seems like the misunderstandings will come from Wilhelm’s side.


  10. I can’t help but imagine Mary’s ending lines as in a high-pitched screech like coming from the witch in Disney’s Snow White. She’s probably stretching the limits of her cute and pitiful persona with that behavior at the party. If I were a noble watching this I really wouldn’t want Mary as a Queen and I’d be having serious concerns about leaving the country’s future in the hands of His Highness – or more likely, the people who would end up controlling him. Looks like His Highness would make a great puppet king. Thanks for teasing us; I like Carol and wish her the best with her love – hopefully he’ll love her back as an equal. Scoring an almost Queen as a wife is definitely marrying high class. Hope Carol can keep her composure in front of the drama and leave the party in a classy way.

  12. You know, it is entirely possible that Mary was bullied and pushed down the stairs by other people using Carol’s name. Like the people bullying her told her that they were doing it for/on behalf of Carol and she focused all her anger on being bullied on Carol.

    After all, if Mary feels entirely justified in calling out Carol in public, so there’s something there. It could be that Mary wants to call out the way Carol uses her ‘friends’, it could be pointing out that pushing people down the stairs is very impolite behaviour. We just feel annoyed because she’s not our lead.


    1. …Does Carol have any friends?

      She hasn’t mentioned any yet, but I’d reckon she was too busy learning to be a Queen to make any friends…

      Rather than friends, it might’ve been people who look down on her since she’s getting close to the Prince and only has the status of a Baron’s daughter…

      Well, it’s a possibility lol


      1. Seems reasonable that as a queen candidate she would have to make “friends” and at least get to know the nobility. The nobility in turn would fawn over her because it is their best chance to get a stronghold into the queen before she becomes a queen.

        An offhand remark interpreted seriously in a bid to gain power. An attempt to make sure their queen candidate is the one who marries the prince.

        Many possibilities.


  13. This novel’s pretty awesome! I’m pretty sure if you weren’t the one translating it i wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much. Hopefully it gets picked up by someone as good as you!


  14. So… this was so interesting I *accidentally* read the GT raws that currently are out. I had the urge to comment on some of the predictions here, but then I decided it would be best not to spoil anything.

    However, if you do want to know, and not keep it ‘public’ here, then you can just contact me in NUF, it’s the same username, only remove the 0 at the end, so it’s just Robbini .


  15. Thanks for the chapter! Mary’s dirty fox tail is already creeping out. XD It would be funny if the Prince regrets things after seeing that, but seems more likely he blames everything on Carol.

    Also an apology is warranted, but it’s pretty much past the point of no return after that public humiliation scene. It’s too bad Carol’s education got a hit too. Even if the Prince apologizes properly, rumor mongers and other trashy people would have definitely made her school life terrible.


  16. in first tl note below it should be “haa??”Since “haa.”while correct according to Japanese but for English reader it would be confusing


  17. Carol should just declare her new engagement and wish the prince his happiness…and ask for the girl’s name again just to nail the nail in the coffin of the prince. Thanks for the update and I hope whoever picks this up will be a great translator like you.


  18. Thanks for hte chapter!! Though, I am surprised no one mentioned the darker side of her Carol’s wish. If she manages to marry Wilhelm-dono, wouldn’t that mean she will become a widow in less than 20 years no matter what? Well, it is not really too dark, but their love will be a short one……. Of course, I will still wish for her happiness regardless. A short love is better than no love at all depending on the circumstances.


  19. Thanks for the chapter~
    That Mary needs some chill, because she’s pulling the situation a little too thin… and boo to that stupid prince guy D:<


  20. Wait, hold on, a 46 year age difference?

    She’s 16… he’s 62… I need some time to come to terms with this.

    In any case, it’s nice to see this kind of setting without the whole reincarnation plot device. Nothing but the age difference stands out so far, but that’s enough to get me hooked.


  21. i went and spoiled the next chapter for myself trying to haphazardly translate it
    it’s weird that bing is a bit more accurate than google translate at times like this
    that being said i’m still looking forward to someone who knows what theyre doing to translate the next chapter even tho i know whatll happen
    god i feel like a middle aged woman excited about her soaps


  22. that’s hard name to translate 😮
    Fureakisuta.. I tried speaking it really fast to get some image connected to it, but nothing clear came out of it..
    I’d separate it into two connected words
    the last part “kisuta” sounds like “kiss”
    the first.. there is variety that comes to my mind – fairy, fair, fray.. Frey and Freya sounds nice.. since it’s royal name – maybe connecting it with goddess Freya or her brother Frey would be best..
    Freyakiss / Freykiss … still sound a bit wierd but not as much as Fureakisuta


    1. Well, I certainly hadn’t thought the whole stupid country would be called that.
      At any rate, the Fure could also be read as Free. Freykiss/Fraykist/Fraykister are at least as likely. They have a sort of Old German placename sound. Freekiss/Freekist sounds more English.

      1. Oh, those sound pretty good actually. Thank you for reading and taking time to think up suggestions~~

        It’s too bad I’m not actually translating this anymore as it has been picked up by a different person. You should try suggesting your names to them~! *^o^*


  23. I think ,,Fureakisuta” could be edited either as Freakist or Freakista, It sound ridiculous, but the author chose this typ of name :DDD

    Thanks for translating btw ^^
