Persecution and vengeance, literally to the hilt.....
Wounded in a skirmish with bandits, Count Sigfrido di Treviri (Lupo) is taken to a nearby castle of the Duke of Brabant where he is tended by his daughter Genoveffa (Alfonso)and the two gradually fall in love. Shortly after their marriage and return to Treveri, the Count fulfills his vow to go on crusade, where he and his men are eventually captured. Meanwhile,in the Count's absence the half mad counsellor Golo (Forsyth with a psychotic edge) tries to force his attentions on the countess who rebuffs him and soon finds herself powerless as her loyal servants are murdered and tortured while Golo consolidates his power. More than four years pass, with the count's letters being intercepted and the countess' reputation ruined as she is accused of adultery and condemned to death. Altogether a rousing tale of persecution and vengeance which will keep viewers interested.
