Martin is about to get married to Fay Morgan but is knocked in the head when she sees him talking to his former fiancée, Alice. While he is knocked out he dreams of being in the court of King Arthur and gaining immense wealth and prestige by industrializing the realm. During the dream he falls in love with the Demoiselle Alisande who is then kidnapped by the king’s evil sister, Queen Morgan Le Fay. He rescues her just as he wakes up and realizes that he should be marrying Alice instead of Fay.
