Based on the novel In the Palace of the King; a Love
Story of Old Madrid by Francis Marion Crawford
(New York, 1900).
King Philip of Spain, jealous of the popularity of his brother, Don John,
sends him to fight the Moors, hoping he will not return. Don John is in
love with Dolores, daughter of General Mendoza, but Mendoza
discourages Dolores, knowing that if Don John does return, he is to
marry the Queen of England's sister. Don John returns victorious. In a
dispute over a secret letter, the king wounds Don John with his sword
and leaves him for dead. When Mendoza takes the blame, Dolores,
who was nearby and knows that the king is guilty, tells the court she
had been dishonored by Don John--thus the reason for her father's
wrath. Then Dolores threatens the king that she will tell the truth to
his subjects unless her father is pardoned. Don John recovers, the king
pardons Mendoza, and Dolores marries her sweetheart.
