Prince Robin of Graustark could save his principality from bankruptcy by marrying the Princess of Dawsbergen, but, to the displeasure of his advisors, he refuses because he has never met her. Then, determined to secure a loan for Graustark, he sails to the United States, where wealthy financier William W. Blithers agrees to provide the money. Eager to be related to royalty, Blithers also hopes to provide a wife by attempting to engineer a marriage between his daughter Maud and the prince. Maud, however, is of the same mind as the prince, and rejects the match because she has never met Robin. Then, Robin falls in love with a woman who he thinks is Maud. Back in Graustark, he brings her to court and introduces her as his fiancée, after which he is astonished by the pleased smiles of his advisors until they inform him that the woman he believed to be a Blithers is really the Princess of Dawsbergen.
