The Archduke and the Country Girl

Archduke Johann of Austria, a grandson of Maria Theresa, who became famous as a victorious general in the war against Napoleon, soon falls into disrepute at court because of his pronounced interest in social problems. Metternich, above all, disapproves of this. Johann's affair with the lovely bourgeois daughter of the aussee postmaster only worsens his situation. But all of Metternich's attempts to hinder this love affair fail. With the help of the understanding empress, the archduke asserts himself and marries his love. She, as countess of Meran, will later energetically support her husband.
