For the King was originally issued on the same reel as the Pathe melodrama The Horseshoe. After shooting and killing a soldier of the French Republic, a peasant hides out in the home of his best friend. The authorities arrive, whereupon the friend does a nice job hiding the killer's presence. Alas, the culprit is given away by a stray strand of wheat, protruding from the door of the house's wine cellar. Both the peasant and his friend are summarily executed, bringing this somewhat pointless exercise to a grotesque conclusion.
