Set in pre-Roman Britain, the story begins when a king’s daughter goes against her father’s wishes and marries a lowborn gentleman instead of her oafish step-brother. The angry king banishes the husband from Britain so the marriage can be annulled. While the husband waits in Rome he is drawn into a heated discussion in defence of her honour and accepts a wager made against her fidelity. Shown false proof by the cheat, the despairing husband sends orders to his servant in Britain to murder princess Imogen for being unfaithful. The servant, knowing her innocence, provides a disguise for her to masquerade as a boy page and travel to Wales where she can hitch a ride to Rome. Meanwhile the step-oaf forces the servant to reveal Imogen's destination and he races after her, determined to ravage and humiliate her, then drag her back to court. What none of them count on is that actions taken years previously interfere with their plans. Like a Roman invasion of Britain by way of Wales.
