    Does this manga have any science fiction or fantasy elements? For example, does it have starships, magic spells, catgirls, or gnomes? If it does, please edit this information in to your question to prevent its closure as off-topic. As it is written, your story could be entirely historical fiction set in 18th-century Europe.

  • @Robert Columbia - If my answer is correct, then the plot involves at least one fantasy element, in that the protagonist wished for a variety of skills she didn't possess at the time, and that wish was granted. The wish is made and granted in the first chapter, and the new skills start becoming apparent from chapter 2 onwards. Jun 29 at 13:04

A Capable Maid...?

From Baka-Updates:

As Maurina, she's on the run as the last of her kingdom’s royal line. Disguised as Marie, she is just a maid, serving the victorious empire. She’s never been very good at anything, so when she's told to make a wish, she asks for the ability to help others and bring them happiness. Now as visions of brilliant and skilled people fill her dreams, she’s imbued with a bounty of abilities perfectly suited for any dilemma. But will her secrets last as the crown prince seeks out both Maurina and Marie?

When Morina's mother died, the emperor of the Clowan Kingdom found her and made her a princess, but ordered that she be kept in a remote part of the palace. She was kind-hearted, but lacking any real skills, she was viewed as being useless by those within the palace, and learned to avoid the gaze of others.

Then, three years ago, an illegitimate son of the emperor, Rael, slaughtered the royal family and took over the throne as the Crown Prince... or at least, that's how Morina remembers it. According to her, he wanted to kill her too, but she managed to hide from him by disguising herself as a maid. She now continues to work as a maid within the palace, using the name 'Marie.'
