When Montriveau meets Antoinette de Navarreins, he is taken by her at first sight, encouraged by her who is up to her usual society tricks. Montriveau tries, in vain, to obtain an irrefutable proof of love. To which Antoinette opposes, hypocritically, religious arguments. During a ball, Montriveau takes her away, hands and feet bound. But he renounces. Henceforth, the duchess is taken by him, but the situation is reversed. But Montriveau will learn the truth too late..
