1816, Dutch royal crown prince Guillot weds in St.Petersburg the Romanov czar's sister Anna Pauwlona, who settles in relatively petty court-life and even his affair with Portuguese former cadet mate Pereira. Sge gives him offspring, notably future heir Willem 'Kleintie', and fires his ambition to once rule France. Father king Willem I, who listens to the people but not his government, makes Guillot war minister and lets him settle in Brussels, blind to the brooding Belgian revolution. Guillot meets all kind of revolutionaries, goes to Catholic confession, self-flagellates and is blackmailed for his affair.
