Kidnapped!

Kampen, 1399. Gerlof, the only son of merchant Pieter Eekhout, embarks on the Saint-Anna for his first commercial journey overseas, together with his uncle Joseph. Their ship runs into the notorious gang of pirates of the Western Sea and Gerlof and his uncle are taken hostage. When Gerlof's father pays a huge ransom, they are set free. Gerlof indignantly demands retaliation and defies his father to join the armada, setting out on a punitive expedition to take revenge on the pirates.

Gerlof's adventures are alternated with those of his sister Gese, who is in love with merchant Simon van Utrecht, also against the wishes of her father.
