Swedish knights plan a crusade to Russia and they send their spy to Novgorod. The boyars' opposition prepares an attempt upon Alexander's life. It nurtures a traitorous plan to surrender the city. To cap all, the duke's best friend Ratmir fell in love with Alexander's beautiful wife, and now he can become a dangerous enemy for Alexander.
