"The novel is set shortly after the battle of Tewkesbury (1471), in which the Yorkist king Edward IV had finally defeated the Lancastrian party. Two exiled Lancastrians, John de Vere, the Earl of Oxford and his son, Arthur, are travelling through Switzerland disguised as merchants and under the assumed name of Philipson. Carrying the diamond necklace of Margaret of Anjou, they are on a mission to convert Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, to the Lancastrian cause. Caught by a storm in the mountains, they find refuge in the home of Arnold Biederman, chief magistrate of Unterwalden. Biederman has relinquished his hereditary title of Count of Geierstein in favour of his brother Albert. His niece, the young Countess Anne, lives under his protection, and rescues Arthur from death when attacked by vertigo on an Alpine ledge. She and Arthur fall in love but, fearing family opposition, Anne treats him with reserve. Biederman too has business with Charles the Bold as part of a delegation sent to protest against the treatment the Swiss have received at his hands. The Philipsons and Biederman set out in company but are seized and imprisoned by Archibald of Hagenbach, employed by Charles the Bold as governor of the citadel of Brisach. They are saved from death only when the citizens of Brisach rebel against their oppressor and de Hagenbach is executed by order of the Vehmgericht (Secret Tribunal). After the party finally reaches the Duke's court, the plot chiefly concerns the Earl of Oxford's efforts to win Charles the Bold's support for Margaret of Anjou and Lancaster. The negotiations are interrupted by the Duke's disastrous military campaign against the Swiss (whose overtures he has rejected) and his eventual death and defeat at the battle of Nancy. The Philipsons/de Veres return to Geierstein, where marriage is celebrated between Arthur and Anne." -- http://www.walterscott.lib.ed.ac.uk
