Not enough slides
Constance has an arranged marriage set up for her with a foreign sultan who converts to Christianity in order to have her hand in marriage.
After arriving in Syria the sultaness murders her own son and all the subjects that converted to Christianity for betraying their faith, leaving only Constance alive and sending her away on a boat with only a small amount of supplies.
While drifting aimlessly across the sea Constance is kept alive by nothing but the grace of God, eventually landing on the coast of Northumberland.
After landing she is seen and taken in by an old constable and lady Hermengild, his wife. She is loved by all and eventually catches the interests of a young knight who after being shunned by Constance decides to take his revenge by framing her for slitting lady Hermengild's throat.
After holding a trial presided over by King Alla, Constance is proven innocent and the knight is smitten by the grace of God. The king converts and takes Constance's hand in marriage, consummating it and getting her pregnant in the same night.
After Constance gives birth, Alla's Mother uses the kings messenger to trick the people into sending Constance and her newborn away without Alla's knowledge. After landing somewhere in the roman empire and finding a home, King Alla finds Constance and arranges a dinner with her father, reuniting them, and ever faithful Constance lives happily ever after.
