King James learns that Elena’s father is Duglas d’Angus, his former tutor, who has since joined the Highland Clan that is opposed to James’s rule. He also learns of Elena’s betrothal to Rodrigo di Dhu, the chief of the Highland Clan and enemy of the king, but his jealousy is assuaged by Elena’s lukewarm reaction to the prospect of her marriage. Malcolm, the suitor whom Elena loves, arrives shortly after James departs. Hidden, Malcolm must endure overhearing Duglas order his daughter to marry Rodrigo, as he commands. After Duglas has left, Malcolm and Elena pledge their love.
The Highland warriors gather to welcome their leader, Rodrigo, who introduces Elena as his future bride. Malcolm has now resolved to join the clan against the king, but his secret bond with Elena is perceived by Duglas and Rodrigo when they meet. When news arrives of an attack by the king’s army and the omen of a meteor passing in the sky, Rodrigo and his warriors depart for battle. Scotland is at war.
Meanwhile, Malcolm has left the battle in the hopes of finding Elena, but is informed she has followed her father to Stirling Palace to seek peace. Rodrigo is reported to have been killed and the Highlanders now face certain defeat. Malcolm declares that he will save Elena or face his own death. Elena enters the castle, determined to save the lives of her father and Malcolm. Using the ring given to her by “Uberto” she gains access to the king’s chambers.
Elena is surprised to see nobles surrounding “Uberto,” who soon reveals his true identity. His feelings for her soften his attitude towards her father, and he pardons both Duglas and Malcolm. Elena and Malcolm are finally united, and all rejoice as a new peace reigns in Scotland.
