Shortly after astrology predicts destruction to befall the Tang Dynasty, a coup d'état led by the crown prince Li's very own brother kills him and his wife and sons. Li's daughter, princess Yongning, manages to escape, but is soon declared dead alongside her family. Full of wrath, the princess swears to avenge them as she takes on the identity of a young man, Li Chang Ge, and moves to the Shou province to advance her goals.

Li Chang Ge uses her wits to gain the trust of the Shou emperor and swiftly climbs the military ranks as a brilliant strategist. Captivatingly drawn, Song of the Long March portrays the feisty girl's adolescent journey toward countless unknown adventures, faithful comradeship, as well as formidable enmity awaiting her along the way.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The manhua has been on hiatus since 2017 due to the author’s contract termination with the publishing company.

If you are searching for your next favorite try Song of the Long March, it is an intelligent tale of revenge and survival after a political coup set in historical China.

Song of the Long March ( aka Chouka kou) is Not your average manga or rather manhua.

Li Change is the daughter of the emperor and is raised in a way to cultivate her intelligence rather than her beauty. When her family is assassinated in a political coup by another family member, she escapes and disappears while allowing her death to be read more

I have only recently gotten into historical mangas, and this one blew me out of the water.
It's hard to believe the author is so young- the art is beautiful, the plot is perfectly complex, and the characters are intelligent, powerful, and flawed. This manga will go down as one of my all time favorites and I encourage anyone looking for a new heart-stopping read to pick this up immediately!

Finally, a manga (manhua, technically) with an actually strong woman protagonist. Not just an undercover reverse harem where the heroine's main power is to stumble into powerful soon-to-be allies that are coincidentally mostly of the bishounen type. No, this main character can fend for herself, both with her wits and in combat. Well, regrettably the direct combat ability is only used at the start and only the cunning genius and stragegic mind get the full attention instead, but point is, the heroine is charismatic and capable, not a self-insert to build an army around.

The art is pretty and clean, pleasant to the eye. It depicts read more

First: I love the historical genre! You learn so much about Chinese history and the ancient Chinese culture which I find so fascinating!

Second: I love the plot! It grabs you and pulls you in at the very beginning, and leaves you at the edge of your seat through out the story with very little to no boring stretches.

Third: Out of all the manga/manhwa/manhua I have read I think that this one probably has the most beautiful art in my read more
