The Girl Who Would Be King is a comedy set in medieval times about a girl named Basil raised secretly from birth as a boy in order to be crowned King. Unfortunately, Basil falls in love with a princess but cruelly spurns the girl to keep the crown. When the princess turns up pregnant, King Basil must pronounce the death sentence on her and her seducer. Calamity ensues when the desperate princess publicly accuses Basil of being the father! What’s the secret girl-king to do? Through coincidences, interventions and even the birth of a baby, Basil finally learns who she really is and discovers the wondrous power of love.
