The highly gifted soul of the artist believes in the refinement of people through art and music. He wants to substitute musical instruction for the people in the place of the military service and uses his power and the money of the state to implement his high ideals of education and culture. But the world around him keeps turning normally and the kingdom is threatened from the outside by wars with Prussia and France. In domestic politics, the minister's ally against the king and his plans. Even in love, Ludwig fails, because the relationship with his fiancée Sophie (Paula Beer) does not go beyond friendship.
