Evil Zagra, king of Caria, is planning to annex Anteo's kingdom of Licia to his own territory by first marrying princess Sira, and then murdering Anteo. On the journey to Caria, Sira is received by Ursus in his country home, where she is attacked. Ursus, who is secretly in love with the princess and wants to protect her from further danger, accompanies her to Zagra's court. Here he makes contact with a group which is conspiring to overthrow the evil king. Zagra recognizes the threat constituted by Ursus, so he tries to precipitate his plans. He has Sira thrown in jail and orders the assassination of her father, king Anteo. But he has underestimated Ursus who, spurred by his love for Sira, defeats Zagra, frees the princess from her chains, and, of course, marries her with Anteo's blessing
