In 1905, billionaire Glawari, a French banker, left his young wife Hanna (from Pontevedro) a legacy of 20 million francs after his death. To prevent it from flowing abroad, Count Danilo Danilovitch, the first secretary of Pontevedro embassy in France, went to court the dowager as ordered by his state, only to find she's his old flame. Danilo refused that out of his dignity, but Hanna still loved him. Then according to the banker's will, Hanna voluntarily gave up her legacy, which made Danilo respond to her love. During their wedding, as stipulated, the legacy was transferred to Danilo once more. In this way, the operetta has a happy ending.
