In desperate need of a doctor after being violently ambushed by bandits, Count Sigfrido of Treviri (Alberto Lupo) seeks refuge at the nearby castle of the Duke of Brabant. There, the ailing Count is nursed back to help by the Duke's lovely daughter Genoveffa (Maria Jose Alfonso). Over the course of his convalescence, Sigfrido and Genoveffa fall deeply in love. Shortly thereafter, the pair decides to marry and the Sigfrido returns to Treviri with his beautiful bride in tow. There romance is short-lived, however, when Sigfrido is summoned to fight in the Crusades. In his absence, Sigfrido requests that his trusted counselor Golo (Stephen Forsyth) to watch after his lonely wife. But Golo's intentions are less than pure, and when Genoveffa rebuffs his advances, he insisits that she be imprisoned for adultery and sentenced to death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
