[[caption-width-right:172:Carol and Memphis]]
''Crest of the Royal Family'' (王家の紋章 ''Ōke no Monshō'', lit. ''Crest of the Royal Family''), is a shōjo manga by Chieko Hosokawa. It has run in the monthly magazine ''Princess'' [[LongRunners since 1976]], and it got the 1991 Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo.

The main character is Carol Reed, an American teenager from a wealthy family with an interest in Egyptology, studying in Cairo. When her mentor discovers the tomb of a young pharaoh, a curse is put on the excavation team and Carol. The curse sends her back in time to ancient Egypt, where she becomes embroiled in the affairs of Egypt and other ancient countries such as Assyria and Babylonia.

One in Egypt, Carol meets Memphis, the handsome young pharaoh whose tomb she excavated in modern times. Despite his headstrong, initially violent nature, they fall deeply in love. This angers Memphis' half-sister, the priestess Isis, who has longed to marry him. Carol, due to her exotic looks and curious ability to tell the future, becomes a major player in ancient history as she attempts to survive, being a fawn surrounded by lions who has to develop a backbone to keep herself alive...

Compare with {{Anatolia Story}}, where a Japanese girl named Yuri gets tossed into the Hitite Empire (located in what we know as Turkey now) instead.

!!''Oke no Monshou'' has the following tropes:
* {{Adorkable}} and CuteBookworm: Carol
* AncientEgypt
* BrotherSisterIncest: Well, this ''is'' AncientEgypt. Isis is madly in love with Memphis and wants to marry him, hence why she hates Carol so much. On the other hand, Carol has to convince Memphis that her older brother, Ryan, is ''not'' her lover.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Carol has to explain to Memphis that she doesn't ''have'' to get married as a kid and that she doesn't want to marry her brother Ryan.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Carol, obviously.
* GuileHero: Carol has to relay on her knowledge of Egyptian history to survive when she finds herself there.
* LongRunners: Thirty-five years and ''counting''!
* LoveDodecahedron: Memphis and Carol love each other. Isis and Princess Caphra of Libya love Memphis. Prince Ishmin of the Hitites, Prince Minos of Chrete and Jimmy Brown love Carol. Minueh loves Isis. Kapta lusts after Carol, while Emperor Algol of Assyria wants Carol as his queen to dominate Egypt. Phew!
* LoveRedeems: Memphis was a huge JerkAss, but Carol has managed to soften him up. In a subversion Carol didn't ''deliberately'' try to soften him up, as she believed that he was an irredeemable brute. She changed him inadvertently simply [[TheMessiah by exposing him to her ethos of compassion and mercy]], while simultaneously trying to escape from him.
* MightyWhitey: The girl who carries on the story of AncientEgypt and changes it for the better is a blue-eyed blonde lass mistaken as a goddess or goddess avatar due to her hair and eyes.
* NamesToKnowInAnime: From the rather... odd OVA: AkiraKamiya (Memphis), YurikoYamamoto (Carol), KazukoSugiyama (Isis, PlayingAgainstType), KanetoShiozawa (Prince Ishmir).
* PluckyGirl: Carol
* PhenotypeStereotype: Carol is American, so she's obviously a blond, blue-eyed cutie.
* {{Shojo}}
* TimeTravel
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Jimmy Brown
* WeakButSkilled: Carol has no fighting skills, but her sharp mind and kind heart give her the upper hand.
* WomanScorned: Oh, Isis.
