He brings forth a tempest which causes the boat with his enemies, Alonso and Antonio, to wash ashore. Fernando, son of Alonso, lands alone and finds Miranda, with whom he immediately falls in love. When Alonso discovers that his son has survived the shipwreck, he blesses the union of Fernando and Miranda and gives Prospero back his kingdom.
