Rhona, daughter of the gypsy king and next in line to succeed him, chooses Wester Churen for her husband and thereby inflames her other suitor Francisco Buckley. While visiting near the gypsy camp, artist Roger Barrington is so taken by Rhona's beauty that he asks her to pose for a portrait. Francisco induces Rhona to steal Roger's valuables, and Rhona is so ashamed after Roger catches her, that she agrees to pose for him. Francisco has told Wester of Rhona's whereabouts, and in a fit of jealousy he finds his wife at Roger's home. Rhona is expelled from the gypsy camp, but her father later believes in his daughter's innocence and sends Wester for her. Rhona arrives as her father is about to die. Francisco stabs Wester, and Rhona then challenges Francisco to a knife duel. Francisco falls on his own knife and dies. The dying king gives his blessing to Rhona and the recovering Wester.
