Rating: Unrated

Set in Wales in the year is 1198, King Maelgwyn (nicknamed Noble) of Maelienydd has wed the young Englishwoman Isabel Mortimer in hopes of neutralizing her uncle Roger, a powerful baron whose father killed Maelgwyn’s father years previous. But almost from their wedding night, the political marriage of Isabel and Noble is a disaster. Even worse for Isabel is his unfathomable relationship with the fool Gwirion, whose outrageous pranks and lewd public performances humiliate her. But when Noble goes off to fight Roger Mortimer, a siege on the castle by an opportunistic Welsh prince forces Isabel and Gwirion to confront each other, and to acknowledge their true feelings for each other.
