Based on a novel by once-popular author Marie Corelli, this melodrama starred Jane Novak as the title character. Thelma and her father live in a village on the Norwegian coast. They have earned the enmity of their fellowmen because the father insists that he is a direct descendant of the Viking kings. Lord Philip Errington (Vernon Steele) shows up in the village because he is trying to escape the clutches of the amorous Lady Clara (June Elvidge). He and Thelma immediately fall in love, and her father urges them to marry. When Lord Philip shows up back in London not everyone is happy to meet his Norwegian bridge. Among those who do not wish the couple well is Lady Clara. She convinces Thelma that Lord Philip has been unfaithful, so she returns home to Norway. Philip follows, and after convincing her that he is true, the couple are happily reunited.
