The show tells the story of Ida, the princess of Transylvania and daughter of Vlad Dracula, who secludes herself with other women in a university dedicated to learning and living independently from men. Prince Hilarion, who has loved her since they were betrothed, goes to find her with his two closest friends (Florian & Cyril) before King Hildebrand of Hungary arrives with his army to force her obedience. Lord Gama Radu, the Ottoman Turk – backed ruler of neighboring Wallachia, attempts to foil King Hildebrand in his plans and is, in turn, taken hostage along with his warrior sons (Arac, Mircea, Vladislav). Ida defiantly rejects Hildebrand’s ultimatum and, in turn, takes hostage Hilarion and his friends who have infiltrated the university dressed as women. The issue culminates in a duel between Hilarion and his friends versus Arac and his brothers.
