The ungrateful nobleman is Arnolfini whose son Steven is an {{Adorkable}} but [[NerdsAreSexy attractive]] youngman who is interested more in [[RenaissanceMan learning]] than fighting and whoring unlike most of the people he hangs out with.
His father has settled his marriage with a beautiful, highborn and virgin young girl and he's not interested at all until, you 'now, he sees her. Agnes (so this is how the lady is called) is beautiful and very interested in learning how [[FilleFatale seduce men and enjoy love]]. While they are enjoying their blossoming romance, they are caught by Martin's gang who starts a fight with Arnolfini's men and robs them. Agnes founds herself unfortunately hidden in the gang's chariot, and when they discover her, she's [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped]] by Martin who's manipulated by Agnes in falling and caring for her (though the attraction is somewhat mutual) and so he wants to [[CrazyJealousGuy keep her to himself]].
