It is the year of 1865 and the Löwencreutz family are expecting a very prominent visitor, King Charles XV is coming to stay. However Carl Henrik von Grimm reads a telegram stating that the King is in fact cancelling his visit.

At the theatre that night Grimm notices the actor Leonard Petterson who happens to resemble the king a great deal. This gives Grimm an idea that could work in his favour. Can he hire the actor to play the King and get away with it?
