While critiquing this fairy tale-like romance, Motion Picture News noted the "youthful personality
and girlish portrayal" of Marguerite Clarke (then a stage star who had just begun her cinematic
career). Count Von Herbeck (James Neill), an ambitious chancellor to the Grand Duke of Ehrenstein
(E. N. Dunbar), secretly marries and has a daughter. At the urging of his dying wife, the count
kidnaps the duke's infant daughter (Marguerite Clark) and substitutes his own in the castle so that
she may live in the style of a great lady. The real princess, abandoned by the gypsies who abducted
her for the count, is raised by peasants and given the name "Goose Girl." The young King Frederick
(Monroe Salisbury) is betrothed to the impostor princess of Ehrenstein, whom he has never seen, but
before the wedding takes place, he runs away and roams the countryside, where he encounters and
falls in love with the Goose Girl. After a series of adventures, during which Frederick decides to wed
the false princess for the good of the country, the Goose Girl's true identity is revealed, and Frederick
is delighted to learn that he is now betrothed to the girl of his heart. This story was based on the
novel by Harold MacGrath.
