Despite his humble existence as a clerk in a button factory, Alexis Caesar Napoleon Brown (Douglas Fairbanks) can't shake the feeling that he might be royalty. Then one day he is awakened by a visitor: the prime minister of Vulgaria (Eugene Ormonde), the country that his late mother emigrated from, who informs Alexis that he is their next king. But royal life isn't all it's cracked up to be, thanks in part to assassination attempts by a would-be usurper named Black Boris (Frank Campeau).
