Lily in Love - A Noble Thing
The Kingdom of Volstein is on the brink of bankruptcy. Prince Carl, the heir to the throne, is to be forced to marry a Spanish noblewoman who is very wealthy in order to rebuild Volstein's national economy.
When Prince Carl learns of the plan he and his butler, Ocks, flee to Paris. They arrange to meet Ocks' cousin, Paul, in Paris. Paul, an usual man, earns his living by helping people in trouble in return for rewards.
Paul's friend, Pavlovitch, tells Paul that his master, the Duke of Gremine needs help. The Duke wishes to marry a commoner, Lily, but the laws of the country forbid such a marriage. Paul agrees to help and involves Prince Carl and Ocks in his plan.
The Prince and Ocks come to an appointment with Paul. Paul isn't there and so Ocks leaves to look for him. Left alone, Prince Carl meets Lily, the Duke's fiances. It's love at first sight for both of them and they plan to meet again.
Paul's plan is to marry Lily to a low ranking rural nobleman and soon obtain a divorce. Then with the status of a former nobleman she will be free to marry the Duke. The reward will make Paul a rich man.
Prince Carl agrees to pay the role of the bridegroom. He needs the money desperately. But he doesn't realize the bridge is to be the girl he has fallen in love with.
The wedding ceremony is conducted with a screen separating the bride and the groom. When the ceremony is over Carl and Lily leave for the place they promised to meet each other. Under emotional strain due to the secret wedding ceremony they quarrel. They have no idea that they have just married each other.
Some days later, Carl doing menial work, meets the recently elevated Lady Lily at a cabaret. The couple quarrels again.
Hiding out and waiting for their plan to come to a conclusion Ocks and Paul take lovers, Simone and Rosa.
The day of the divorce arrives. To his shock Carl discovers his bride was Lily. In love more than ever he pursues Lily to the realm of the Duke of Gremine.
