The Triumph of Love


This period comedy is about a young queen, who inherited the throne from her father, who had usurped it, killing the rightful king in the process. Now, the dead ex-king's son would like his throne back. The queen spots him one day, and falls in love (or should that be lust). She concocts a grand scheme to marry him, thereby getting her man, and putting him back on the throne as well. So she disguises herself as a man, and goes to study under the same tutor as her hunk. She then sets about seducing (verbally) not only the tutor, but his spinster sister as well, while also trying to curry enough favour with Hunk, who has been brought up to hate her...
