The liberation of Mompracem is celebrated by all at a great feast. Sandokan takes advantage of the occasion to introduce Mariana to all. All the pirates swear to defend the Pearl of Labuan with their lives. The Tiger of Malaysia tells his men that he no longer wishes to be a pirate, that he now wants to marry Mariana and go off to live peacefully with her. Mariana is moved by the pirates’ display of affection and agrees to stay in Mompracem as their queen. In Labuan, Lord James Guillonk has managed to reach Victoria and goes to see Baronet Roshental. They discuss the best way of freeing Mariana and make a plan to kidnap Damna, the daughter of Tremal-Naik, good friend and ally of Sandokan.
