In Kronberg, Ruritania, the planned wedding of Queen Regina (Seena Owen) and Prince Wolfram (Walter Byron) is halted when the prince falls in love with Patricia Kelly (Gloria Swanson), a beautiful orphan at the convent. The prince kidnaps Patricia and takes her to the palace, but the queen drives her out. After a failed suicide attempt, Patricia unwillingly allows her scurrilous aunt to marry her off to a decrepit scoundrel. Undaunted, Wolfram follows Patricia to her new home in East Africa.
