Chauffeur Tommy Trotter (Robert Warwick) is really Lord Eric Temple. He's one of a group of down-on-their-luck royals who are working at menial jobs. Once a week, however, they hold court, just as they did in the old days. Corr McFadden (Edward Jobson), the butler at these proceedings, isn't what he appears to be, either -- he's a powerful political boss. Temple is in love with a governess, Miss Emsdale (Lois Wilson) who is in reality Lady Jane Thorne. When the royals' meeting is raided, Jane is rescued by McFadden, enabling her and Temple to be together. This picture was based on the novel by George Barr McCutcheon.
