American heiress Florence Brent wants to marry the aristocratic Duke of Buritz, with whom she has traveled to Europe. On the orders of the duke's father, however, Evelyn must have a title before a wedding can take place, and so she quickly marries Count Janefski, the duke's friend, with plans of becoming a countess and a divorcée in quick succession. Then, after the ceremony, Florence discovers that the duke already has a wife, while the count grows increasingly enthusiastic about being married. Finally, Florence's American sweetheart, John Oglesby, who has followed her to Europe, pulls a pistol on the count, and lets him decide between making himself an ex-husband or Florence a widow. After the count chooses the former, John takes Florence back to America and marries her.
