If you are feeling the void after the recent conclusion of the captivating The King's Woman (along with the equally popular fantasy saga Lost Love in Times), there is help! Check out these excellent dramas that are ready for your binge-watch to fill your craving for historical romances.

As you may know, King Ying Zheng, who later became the First Emperor of Qin in China, never officially named a queen despite his harem full of beauties. Take a look at these fabulous historical romances involving the women who would be queens. You can also expect gorgeous costumes in these period dramas.

1. Virtuous Queen of Han - This queen's rise is practically a Cinderella story from ancient China.

Based on real history, the drama is an enchanting tale of a lowly servant's daughter who grew up in turbulent times. She would eventually become the empress of Emperor Wu of Han, one of the most famous Chinese emperors.

3. Imperial Doctoress - She is loved by two emperors, but her first passion is for medicine and helping people.

The drama tells the story of two royal princes who not only would fight for the throne, but also compete for the love of one woman who wants to become a female doctor, in a time when women are highly restricted in pursuing their choice of profession.

4. The Princess Weiyoung - When her kingdom is obliterated, a young princess assumes a new identity and sets off for her revenge mission. Little could she anticipate that she would fall in love with the enemy's prince who wants to make her his queen.

This very popular drama won viewers' hearts, especially when the on-screen couple, Tiffany Tang and Luo Jin, publicly declared their off-screen real love.

5. The Moon Embraces the Sun - The king meets a woman who resembles his dead fiancee. Did she come back alive, or is he hallucinating?

This drama set historic highs in ratings when it was broadcast in South Korea in 2012. It is also among the most popular dramas on DramaFever. The cast of actors, especially the younger ones, have now become leading stars. Nevertheless, the drama still feels fresh and remains one of my forever favorites.
