Producers loved to make films based on E. Phillips Oppenheim's novels about mythical European nations. This one was produced by Edison. The king of Waltenburg (William West) allows his daughter Isobel (Mary Fuller) to give up her right to the throne so that she can marry an actor, Feurgeres. But she dies a few years later, leaving a daughter who, under the laws of Waltenburg, is still heir to the throne. She is placed in a convent, where she grows up (to be played as an adult by Fuller). The archduchess, determined that her own daughter shall claim the throne, plots with the notorious Major Delahaye to spirit the girl away. But her father, who has kept track of her, foils their plans and places the princess with three young men who share a studio with their housekeeper. All the men fall in love with the girl, but they're reluctant to declare themselves. The archduchess finally kidnaps the girl, but she is rescued. The King dies and the princess takes over Waltenbrug's throne. But she only rules for a year, because she has fallen in love with one of the three men, an author. Like her mother she renounces the throne for love.
