Historical film about the love between Prince Wilhelm of Prussia with Princess Elisa of the Polish royal family, whom he wishes to marry. Court intrigues and the political and dynastic situation complicates things, especially when the Russian royals also have an interest in Elisa for political reasons.

[Film was made in 1938, but was not passed by the Nazi censors (largely because of disapproval of the star Lida Baarova whose affair with Goebbels was ended at Hitler's instigation by the time the film was finished). It was released in West Germany in March 1950 under the title LIEBESLEGENDE].
