Spoilt, imperious and proud, Princess Agnes of France is delighted to be marrying the heir to the emperor of Constantinople. She expects that she will be living in the greatest luxury that only the greatest city in the world can offer. And when the girl-bride meets Alexios, her boy-groom, she is delighted.

Overawed by her beauty, he is easy to manage. But following the death of his father, Alexios is too young for the responsibility thrust on him. Dangerous forces are gathering and Andronikos, the people's favourite, overthrows him.

Alexios and his mother meet a violent and bloody end, but the beautiful Agnes catches Andronikos' eye and once again she finds herself emperess. But power corrupts Andronikos and he becomes a tyrant, leaving Agnes at the mercy of his paranoid rages. As he descends into madness, one man, Theodore Branas, manages to help save her from him. But his madness had turned the people of the city against him and Agens and Adronikos escape by boat. They are caught and dragged back to the city where Andronikos is torn limb from limb.

Agnes is once again a widow. But she has fallen hopelessly in love with Theodore.
