King Richard of England is planning to safely move his army into the Northern parts of Europe. However, he wishes to be greeted with allies upon his arrival, so he decides to marry his son, Harry, to the Spanish Infanta to form an alliance between England and Spain. After learning that Harry is already engaged to 9 other princesses (and one prince) from previous similar plans Richard had, he decides to marry his other son, Edmund to the Infanta. Edmund is quite excited, thinking her to be one of the most ravishing and beautiful woman in Europe. When he discovers she is quite the opposite, he tries to call off the marriage with the help of Baldrick and Percy.
