Plot – Captain Thorpe commands a 40-gun-galleon. He is one of the bold pirates who at the end of the sixteenth century assaulted Spanish galleons on behalf of Queen Elizabeth in order to replenish the state coffers with looted gold. After sinking the ship that was carrying the Spanish ambassador, Thorpe asks for an audience with the English Queen and proposes a plan to capture the Spanish gold in the Panamanian colony. The Spanish ambassador, learning of the plan, warns the authorities, who prepare to welcome the corsair as he deserves. Donna Maria, granddaughter of the ambassador and in love with Captain Thorpe, tries to warn him of the impending danger but she fails, and on his arrival in Panama the pirate is captured along with his men. Thorpe, however, does not lose hope, organizes their escape and manages to regain possession of his ship. A triumphal welcome awaits him in England, together with a title: now he will finally be able to marry Maria.
