Loved by her father, who died in the war, but rejected by her mother, who leave her to raise in the Luthearn Court as a prince. That court was dominated by men who thought she should be married and act as a normal girl, but despite being educated in that conservative atmosphere, Queen Christina was open minded and free, and a precursor of the feminist movement too, but she was also a very lonely person, who will find love and passion with Countess Ebbra Sparre, a beautiful and elegant woman. Christina will have to choose between her feelings and her country.
