She confronts the source of the melody within her haze of madness. In a moment of clarity, she realizes he is Arturo there in the flesh.
He assures her he has always loved her, and the woman he left with on their wedding day was actually the Queen he was trying to save.
Giorgio and Riccardo arrive with the troops and it is announced that Arturo is sentenced to death. Elvira is shocked back to reality and can finally think straight.
The two lovers make desperate pleas to save him from death, and even Riccardo is moved. The soldiers do not give in and push harder for his execution.
Then the sound of trumpets is heard announcing Arturo's arrival; he is welcomed by all. Arturo and his squires come into the hall and are joined by Elvira, Valton, Giorgio and the ladies and gentlemen of the castle.
After a general welcome from all assembled, Arturo expresses his new-found happiness. Valton tells everyone that he will not be able to attend the wedding ceremony and he provides Arturo with a safe conduct pass.
A mysterious lady appears, and Valton tells her that he will be escorting her to London to appear before Parliament. Arturo is curious.
Giorgio tells him that she is suspected of being a Royalist spy. As Elvira leaves to prepare herself for the wedding and the others depart in various directions, Arturo hangs back and finds the mysterious lady alone.
He discovers that she is Enrichetta Henrietta Maria , widow of the executed King Charles I. You shall be saved, oh unhappy woman.
To allow that to happen, she removes her wedding veil and places it over Enrichetta's head. Both Arturo and Enrichetta realise that this may allow them to escape, and as they proceed, they are challenged by Riccardo who believes the woman to be Elvira.
He almost provokes a fight with Arturo until he discovers that she is not Elvira; then, he is content to allow them to pass, swearing not to reveal any information.
When the wedding party enters, they ask for Arturo, then learn, largely from Riccardo, that he has fled with Enrichetta. Pursuit is organised.
It is increasingly clear that she has gone mad. Riccardo brings the news that Arturo is now a fugitive who has been condemned to death by Parliament for allowing Enrichetta to escape.
Giorgio states that the only hope for Elvira will be a sudden joyous experience. Elvira is heard outside, still deranged but longing for Arturo: "Either give me back hope, let me die" she cries.
As she enters, she expresses all her longing: Elvira, aria: Qui la voce Here he swore to be true, here he swore it, and then, cruel man, he fled!
Entering, she confronts her uncle and Riccardo, whom she fails to recognise, even in her moments of lucidity. The two men encourage Elvira to return to her room.
For Elvira's sake, Giorgio encourages Riccardo to help save his rival, advising that he will forever be pursued by their phantoms.
However, he states that if in the following day's battle, Arturo appears, he will perish at his hand. Let the trumpets sound, and I shall fight strongly, fearlessly.
Arturo is still on the run. He is exhausted and has returned seeking Elvira. He calls out, but gets no response and, recalling how the couple used to sing together in the woods, he also sings the troubadour melody until the sound of drumbeats and the shouting of soldiers silences him.
Unseen, Elvira emerges from the trees and stops to listen. She is saddened when the singing stops, and she sorrowfully wonders where Arturo is.
Suddenly, he is standing before her and they are reunited in a spirited duet in which they declare that they will always be together after the long months of being apart.
Still a little confused, Elvira believes that Arturo has married the woman whom he escorted from the fortress; he assures Elvira that he has always loved her, that the lady who was in great danger was the queen: Arturo; then Elvira; then together.
Having determined that they love each other and that they will always remain together, they enter into an ecstatic duet.
At the sound of drums being heard, Elvira appears to be returning to a state of madness, fearing that they will again be parted.
