In an attempt to resolve the matter, Edwin offers to marry both girls, but his suggestion is rejected on the grounds of bigamy.

Being too shy to develop a relationship with Rose, Robin calls upon Richard Dauntless who offers to speak to Rose on Robin’s behalf. Overcome by Rose’s beauty, Richard sets about capturing her for himself and nearly succeeds in doing so, until Robin finally declares his love for her and wins her back. Richard has his revenge and reveals that Robin is none other than the true baronet of Ruddigore, and as such the rightful inheritor of the curse.
