* [[ActuallyThatsMyAssistant Actually That's My Maid]]: Prince Zananza initially mistakes Hadi as the infamous concubine that Kail picked up. When he's corrected and sees Yuri for the first time, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he assumes that Kail is shacking up with a young boy]].
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Nakia's sister Nadia is in love with Mattiwaza, who doesn't seem to share the sentiment. Aside from running away with her because his own people began a mutiny, that is.

** In the same arc, after the Queen Dowager Nefertiti is disgraced the sculptor that was working on a bust of her uses the obsidian stone that was her brother's TragicKeepsake as an eye for the bust. When the sculptor complains that there is only one stone, Nefertiti retorts that given her disgrace no one will care about her statue. In modern times that bust is one of the most iconic art pieces of Ancient Egypt.

* MarriageBeforeRomance: Near the start of the series, Kail saves Yuri from being made into a HumanSacrifice by pretending he slept with her and thus making her unusable. From there, the two have to pretend she's his concubine (which pretty much means being his wife all but on paper) so he can protect her from his evil stepmother's murder attempts. The two play the part at first, but remain distant as they anticipate sending Yuri home soon. They do fall in love for real, though. After Yuri chooses to stay with Kail, the rest of the manga is about them trying to overcome obstacles so they can be married legally.
* TheMatchmaker: When Ilbani sees how well [[spoiler:Juda and Alexandra]] are getting along, he checks that [[spoiler:Juda's]] legal wife died in the plague and then decides to arrange for the two to be married.



* PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: A variant is done between [[spoiler:Juda and Alexandra]]. When Ilbani sees how well the two are getting along, he checks that [[spoiler:Juda's]] legal wife died in the plague and then decides to arrange for the two to be married.
