The Lost Heir of Linlithgow, or simply, “The Lost Heir.”
Trusting that he acts in the best interest of all involved, Doctor Seton tells young Eglantine that her poor infant child has died, but he secretly gives it to another grieved patient who has actually lost her newborn. And so the young heir grows up unbeknownst to his regal parents.
