The Count de Nevers, a Catholic leader, has a banquet and invites Raoul de Nangis, a Huguenot, and his retainer, Marcel. In a song contest Raoul toasts an unknown beauty whom he rescued from attackers. He is shocked to see Nevers greeting this woman in the garden and suspects there is a liaison. Meanwhile Queen Marguerite de Valois plans to end the religious divide by arranging a meeting between Raoul and the woman he saved, She is Valentine, daughter of Catholic leader St Bris, who is promised to Nevers. She had come to his garden to ask him to release her. Raoul misunderstands the Queen’s intentions and rejects Valentine. In Paris Nevers prepares for marriage to Valentine. The populace is restless, disturbed by the presence of Royalist and Huguenot soldiers. Marcel delivers to Valentine’s father a challenge from Raoul to fight a duel. The Catholic noblemen conspire to kill Raoul but Valentine has overheard the plot. As she loves Raoul, she warns Marcel who brings his troops. The fight is averted when the Queen arrives but the marriage of Valentine and Nevers goes ahead. Raoul is devastated when he hears from the Queen that Valentine had asked Nevers to release her. Raoul seeks Valentine to learn the truth, but the Catholic noblemen arrive and she hides him. He overhears them plan a massacre of the Huguenots on St. Bartholomew night. Only St Nevers refuses and he becomes a prisoner as the others go to battle. Valentine releases Raoul but cannot stop him rushing to defend his cause. He finds the Huguenot leaders, ignorant of the massacre that has begun, and summons them to battle. Raoul and Marcel take refuge in a churchyard where Valentine finds them. She begs Raoul to adopt her faith and marry her as Nevers has met a noble death. He refuses to sacrifice his religion and she decides to fight as a Huguenot. They are driven back to a churchyard and here they are found by the Catholics who massacre those who do not escape. Raoul, who has been severely wounded, is supported by Marcel and Valentine when they are found by her father. St. Bris and his troops. Raoul, Valentine, and Marcel are killed. Too late St. Bris discovers that he has murdered his own daughter.
