The hero of this classic swashbuckling romance, English gentleman Rudolf Rassendyll, is transported from a comfortable life in London to extraordinary adventures in Ruritania, a mythical land. Rassendyll bears an uncanny resemblance to Rudolf Elphberg, who is about to be crowned King of Ruritania; and when Elphberg's rival, the villainous Black Michael of Strelsau, attempts to seize power, Rassendyll impersonates the King to uphold the rightful sovereignty and ensure political stability.
