Description
From Friendship Scans:

Beginning of 16th century, Alexandra was captured by slave traders from Ukraine during one of their many raids. When the traders arrived in Greece to sell the female slaves, a young handsome man named Mateus bought her and promised to give her true freedom. He hired countless teachers, scholars, and palace ladies to train her into the most perfect woman of her time. Mateus's kindness has caused Alexandra to deeply fall in love with him, and she secretly wishes to be his concubine. But cruel fate! Mateus has already promised her to his best friend? Suleiman the Great, Emperor of the Ottoman Empire! Mateus promised Alexandra of true freedom, but where is freedom when she is in another man's harem and can only look at the one she loves from afar? Not willing to endure agony, Alexandra promises herself that one day, she will free both of them from their bird cages, but Mateus is the Grand Vizier, power only second to the Emperor himself. So Alexandra must become the most influential concubine in order to have any hope... which also means, bearing Suleiman's son. However, Suleiman already has a son by another concubine, and this woman is determined to keep her son as the only prince.

Hence begins the story of a slave to an empress of the greatest empire of all time, Alexandra, the woman who would one day be known as Roxelana, Empress of the Ottoman Empire.

As I started reading this I thought it was so out of league with Red River, but as the story progressed (it's only been 6 chapters) it may turn out to be something in the league of Red River.

For those who fell in love with Red River, try flirting with (reading) this one. Who knows, you might fall in love with it too.

It is a fiction of a real story. All the characters were the people in the past!
I really love how the story is going and I AM SO CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN NEEEEXT. I also gave this manga a 10 biggrin

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But I'm EXTREMELY HAPPY to know that she would end up with the emperor who was SUPER GOOD-LOOKING :D I hope he comes to love her soon! But I'm seriously wondering how Sasha will live in the Harem. Unlike in Anatolia where Yuri was the first and only concubine/wife, here she has to fight the other women in the harem for the king attention.. Looking forward for more updates!


Wish I knew this series earlier, I would help the scanlators to have faster updates cos I'm kinda good at photoshop since I can make good designs and stuffs. But unfortunately I have to go back to school in 2 days :/ So anybody who hasn't gone back to school yet or is still in their free time.. HELP THEM GUYS <3

However, this is for those who like Red River smile The two series have similarities! Read it since the other series is a masterpiece. I REALLY HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR THIS ONE <3 <3

Even though I had skimmed through it, I feel that this manga series would be as great as Red River by the same mangaka.

For those who have loved Red River I would recommend this series.

Hello fangirls and fanboys of Alexandra and Suleyman, I'd like to recommend you all the turkish TV series Magnificent Century (Muhteşem Yüzyıl). It's different from the manga, and it sometimes doesn't follow history to the letter, but it's a very very interesting show, and I know for certain that it has a huge fanbase across Europe.
The manga is also great even though Suleyman is blond and beardless xD
