Scene-21 A Chamber in the Nuns'
Apartments of the Convent.
Agatha reminisces-- Her father, Count Baldwin pledged
her to Hugo but she was in love with Harold, a Danish Knight,
who was already married to Hugo's sister, Dorothea.
Hugo gives chase to Harold and Agatha, and defeats Harold in a fight
in the forest. Agatha is returned to her father who vows to
send her to the Convent.
Agatha explains to URSULA-The Abbess- "As I fled with the Dane,
so I might have fled with Hugo of Normandy."
