Constance is looking for a man to marry. She is the most beautiful lady you would ever see.
A group of merchants from Syria travels to Rome. During their visit, they hear about Constance, the Emperor’s daughter. When the merchants return to Syria, they tell the young Syrian Sultan about Lady Constance. He was determined to make her his wife. But he has to be baptized a Christian.
Oh no! Who did this to you Hermengild
The Sultan’s mother will not give up her old Religion for the sake of this foreign girl, and she devises a plan to ruin her son’s happiness. During the wedding banquet, the mother’s troops sweep into the banquet hall and kill all the Christians, including the young Sultan, her son.
Lady Constance is spared, but she is set adrift on the sea.Her ship is at the will of the currents, and after a considerable length of time is beached in Northumberland, England, a Pagan land. She is found by the Constable and his wife who care for her.
One night Satan enters and murders Hermengild, and leaves the murder weapon in Constance’s bed. Accused of the murder, she is taken by the Constable to King Alla. The King sentences her to death, but the women of the Court wail, pleading for Constance to be spared. The whole Court is converted to Christianity, except Donegild, the mother of the King.
The King and Constance fall in love and are married. The King is away fighting the Scots, Constance gives birth to a beautiful son. Constance writes to her husband, but Donegild changes the message, saying that the child is disfigured. The King replies that it is God’s will, but again this letter is intercepted, and Donegild writes that the King wishes the son to be destroyed.
Constance leaves in a ship for home. Back in Rome, the Emperor sends an army to Syria to avenge the death of the Christians. On their way back from Syria, they discover Constance in her small boat, but she has lost her memory, and they do not recognize her. Alla later founds her and his child, and they return to England.
