I remember that she kills the king with a sword dance and I think she had red hair.

    @b_jonas - I feel like this one was closed unfairly. I count 7 separate piece of info that would be very unlikely to be together (manga / female lead / reborn / reborn many years later / kills someone / kills a king / sword dance). The 'sword dance' in particular is going to be highly identifiable

    @Valorum Some of those 7 are guaranteed to be together: if someone is "reborn many years later", they're definitely "reborn", and if a character "kills a king", then that's definitely a tick for "kills someone" too. The first two pieces of information "manga" and "female lead" also don't seem like they narrow anything down much.

    @Valorum I think you need to reread my comment, you got it the wrong way round.

I am very sure this is The Lady and the Beast.

This is only the beginning of the story (first two to three chapters), but everything matches (red haired female protagonist that kills a king with a sword dance and is reborn - with red hair again - 100 years after her death).

The story revolves around her taking her sister's place in an arranged marriage with a duke, that was turned into a beast (huge wolf) by a hereditary curse, and her breaking the curse.
