This German-made adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel came to the States without any credits listed, except for actress Ellen Richter, who played Mary Tudor, Queen of Scots, otherwise known as "Bloody Mary." The queen's lover, a wily Italian adventurer named Frabino, takes over the reigns of power from her ministers. The people are up in arms over this state of affairs, and the Spanish Ambassador comes up with a scheme to get rid of the interloper: he convinces a commoner, Jane, who is engaged to Gilbert, a craftsman, to claim that Frabino has made love to her. She does as requested and both Frabino and Gilbert are thrown into prison. But the queen still loves Frabino, and through Jane, she tries to manipulate the situation so that Gilbert will be beheaded instead of Frabino. But Jane double-crosses the queen, and Frabino goes to his death while Gilbert goes free. The ambassador rewards him and Jane for their efforts.
