Twice married before she was 13, Rosamund Bolton, mistress of Friarsgate Manor, vows that the next time she weds she will have a say in the matter. Upon the death of her second husband, she becomes a ward of King Henry VII. She is escorted to court by Sir Owein Meredith, who soon escorts her back home, having become her third husband.
Even though the king has arranged the match, it meets with Rosamund's approval, but after several years of wedded bliss and three daughters, a tragic accident takes Owein from her. Called back to court, Rosamund must serve the new queen, Katherine of Aragon, while trying to fend off the amorous advances of Katherine's second husband, lusty King Henry VIII.
