It tells the tragic story of Sophie Dorothea, a young girl forced into a loveless marriage with King George I of England, a cruel and ruthless monarch.
Sophie Dorothea's bleak existence is transformed when the manipulative Countess von Platen, an influential figure in the royal court, adopts a handsome young protégée, Count Philip Konigsmark.
However, in a world where the monarch wields the power, Sophie Dorothea and Konigsmark's forbidden passion places them in danger, for if their betrayal is discovered, they must face the wrath of the king.
