Astaroate Halstein is the daughter of the king’s brother, making her a princess of the royal family. In her original life, she grew up and married Cedric, the second son of a powerful marquis.
Their marriage allowed Astaroate and Cedric to eventually become the queen and king. That is the reason why fans of the series are really excited for the release date of the upcoming I Think It Would Be Better For Me to Become King Chapter 21.
However, the story takes a tragic turn when Cedric betrays Astaroate. He falsely accuses her of treason and has her sentenced to death. She is executed, ending her life prematurely.
However, Astaroate is then reincarnated back into her younger self on the very day she was originally condemned to die. Given a second chance at life, she is determined not to repeat the same mistakes. Astaroate decides she must take a different path and claim the throne for herself instead of relying on Cedric.
Driven by the desire not to be betrayed again, Astaroate resolves to become the first ruling queen. Her reincarnation allows Astaroate to reshape her destiny using the knowledge of her doomed future.
Recap and Review
The story opens with Cedric, the second son of the powerful Marquis Montpellier, approaching Princess Astaroate. He puts on an act of falling in love at first sight with her under the romantic fluttering flower petals. Astaroate is flattered by the attentions of this handsome nobleman.
In the course of time, Cedric successfully woos Astaroate, and they are married. As the only remaining member of the royal family, Astaroate hands over all power and authority to her new husband, King Cedric, upon their marriage.
Naively, Astaroate believes she has freed herself from the heavy burdens of rulership and can now relax into the carefree life of a queen beside her beloved. But this perspective proves to be nothing more than a fantasy and illusion crafted by Cedric.
In truth, their meet-cute first encounter, romantic dates, and loving proposal were all elaborate acts and deceptions by Cedric for his own hidden purposes. Astaroate realizes this too late.
Six years after their marriage, Astaroate finds herself caged and condemned as a traitor. King Cedric publicly denounces her in front of the full court, accusing her of impersonating the previous queen and single-handedly destroying the kingdom. He declares he will have her executed for treason.
Astaroate is shocked and heartbroken, her trust completely betrayed. After her death, the real story can finally begin—everything up until her execution was merely set up for the major conflict still to come.
Cedric’s true motivations and the reasons for Astaroate’s downfall have yet to be revealed. Her death marks the start of tumultuous times for the kingdom.
