I'm looking for manga with a setting in a kingdom, with kings, commoners, castles war, horses, and all that jazz. Romance is strongly preferred, especially if it is a female lead who isn't a princess or some nobility. I would do a category search but there doesn't seem to be a tag with this kind of setting!

Some pluses include: strong and smart female lead, not super cutesy art, not too much fighting, somewhat political or interesting storyline, romance <3

Anyway, I really love this type of setting, so I'll greatly appreciate any suggestions, even if they don't have any if the "pluses." I have some manga on my lists already, like Basara (which was great for many volumes until it was just dragging on) and the one with the girl with red hair (which honestly seemed too unserious and could have taken place in any other setting and been the same shallow story, only read a few chapters), but I don't mind you restating them and adding review for anyone else interested in this thread. Thanks!

Edit: Forgot to add, I don't mind if it's a Japanese, Scottish, Russian, or whatever "king"dom but I was thinking more European.

Hmm..well here are a few?

Reimei no Arcana - Unless this is the one with the girl who has red hair that you mentioned not enjoying? Though I'm assuming you meant Akagami no Shirayukihime since you have that one on your reading list.
Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori - Not European ambient
Ludwig Kakumei - A bit of an unorthodox suggestion.....haha
Joou no Hana - Another that is not European ambient
+C: Sword and Cornett - Romantic love isn't really a main part of the story. (But there is platonic & family love involved?)

Anyway, sorry if none of those work out! Hope you find a great manga with all your 'pluses'. smile

Seisenki Elna Saga Though the art is a bit bad but I think it will be a great story but! It haven't been updated for a long time DX You dont need to try it I just want to suggest this to someone o-o Try 07 Ghost I guess, it's kinda a bit kingdom-like?
Inorihime wa Sora ni Warau is good too

and there's more:
Ookami-heika no Hanayome
Ouke no Monshou
Sekainohate de Aimashou
Twelve Nights
Destination Heaven Chronicles
Himitsu no Himegimi Uwasa no Ouji
Hyakunen Renbo
Romeo x Juliet
Superior and Superior
Tokage Ouji

Well I think there's more but I'm too lazy ;3 Sorry if I'm off.
