剧情简介:

A black man of royal blood falls in love with the daughter of the general in command of his native country, goes to the high official and asks for her hand, feeling sure that his royal origin entitles him to that honor. His suit being, however, rejected with a smile of contempt by the general, he swears he will avenge himself for the offense on the whole family, and returns to his camp and has a long confab with the black princess, who, loving him deeply and thinking that he wants revenge for an insult, grants him permission to take some of her men to help him, and he sets off with his little armada, enters the private grounds of the general, and, after having waited in ambush for some time, jumps upon the family of his offender as they are returning from a pleasure trip. They are all bound hand and foot, with the exception of the general and his attendant, who are wounded and left as dead. After a weary journey the poor female victims enter the native town tied together as slaves, and after being booted out by the angry blacks, they are led into a tent and closely guarded. The dark-complexioned lover is soon seen entering that tent, and he again declares his love to the general's daughter, and she, refusing even to listen to him, he decides on a horrible vengeance. He accuses them of heresy before his people, and after having tied them to torture posts, orders them to renounce their faith in God and worship idols. The victims refusing, as our fiend well expected they would, orders them to be put to death, but the general's attendant, having followed the ravisher's trail and having explained to the black princess the unfaithfulness of her lover, comes to their rescue with the broken-hearted black princess. The next picture shows the white fugitives riding for their lives, closely pursued by the infuriated black man and his tribe. Through great presence of mind on the part of the black princess, however, they manage to put their enemies off the trail; but the efforts of the last hours have proved too much for the frail white women, and they are compelled to stop and rest. The black princess, however, full of courage and understanding well that if help does not come to her protégés very soon, they will be overtaken again by her make-believe lover and put to death. She runs off and after a terrible journey, reaches the general's camp, tells him of his daughter's terrible predicament and begs for help. This is granted with alacrity, and the last scene shown a terrible fight between black and white men, the overpowering of the rebels and the death of the black chief, who is shot before the eyes of his loving but forsaken black princess. At the sight of her loss the black woman falls prostrate with grief on the body of her lost lover.
