Throughout the silent era (and into the sound era, for that matter), the mythical kingdom (or imitations thereof) of author George Barr McCutcheon formed the basis for innumerable motion pictures. This film wasn't the first and it was far from the last. Prince Robin of Graustark (Bryant Washburn) is being ordered to marry the Princess of Dawsbergen (Marguerite Clayton). But he does not want to wed a girl he has never met, so when he sails to America to negotiate a loan for his country, he scouts around for an appropriate female. While doing business with millionaire banker William Blithers (Ernest Maupain), he believes he has found her. He thinks the girl is Blithers' daughter, but when he returns to Graustark, he discovers that the girl he loves is none other than the Princess he was supposed to marry all along.
