Romilda is determined to remain faithful to the man she loves, Arsamene. Princess Amastre now arrives, disguised as a man. She was engaged to Serse but he jilted her and she is furiously determined to be revenged. Ariodate, general to Serse and father of Romilda and Atalanta, enters with news of a great military victory he has won.
Serse is grateful to him and promises that as a reward his daughter Romilda will marry a man equal in rank to the King himself. Arsamene gives Elviro a letter for Romilda, telling her how distressed he is at their forced separation and pledging to try to visit her in secret. Romilda's sister Atalanta, hoping to secure Arsamene for herself, tells Romilda that Arsamene is in love with another girl, but Romilda does not believe it.
Elviro has disguised himself as a flower-seller in order to deliver his master Arsamene's letter to Romilda, and is also putting on a rural accent. He does not approve of the King's desire to marry a mere subject such as Romilda and makes this clear. Princess Amastre, in her disguise as a man, hears Elviro expressing this and she is aghast at the King's plan to marry another when he promised to be hers Aria: Or che siete speranze tradite.
Amastre leaves in despair and rage and Atalanta enters. Elviro tells her he has a letter for her sister and Atalanta takes it, promising to give it to Romilda.
Instead she mischievously shows the letter to the King, telling him that Arsamene sent it to her and no longer loves Romilda. Serse takes the letter and shows it to Romilda, telling her Arsamene is now in love with Atalanta, not her. Princess Amastre has decided to kill herself but Elviro arrives in time to stop her.
She resolves to confront the King with his ill-treatment of her. Sailors hail the completion of the bridge, constructed under Serse's orders, and Serse orders his general Ariodate to cross the bridge with his army and invade Europe. Serse encounters his heart-broken brother Arsamene and tells him to cheer up, he can marry the woman he now loves, Atalanta, no problem.
Arsamene is confused and insists he loves Romilda, not Atalanta. Hearing this, the King advises Atalanta to forget about Arsamene, but she says that is impossible. Elviro watches as a violent storm threatens to destroy the new bridge.
He calms his nerves with drink. Serse and Arsamene are both suffering from jealousy and the tribulations of the love lorn.
Serse again implores Romilda to marry him but she remains firm in her refusal. The violently furious Amastre appears and draws a sword on the King but Romilda intervenes. Amastre says Romilda should not be forced to marry a man she does not love, and Romilda praises those who are true to their hearts Aria: Chi cede al furore.
Romilda and Arsamene are having a lovers' spat about that letter, but calm down when Atalanta appears and admits her deception. She has decided she will have to find another boyfriend somewhere else. Serse again implores Romilda to marry him and she tells him to seek her father's permission, if he consents, she will.
Arsamenes bitterly reproaches her for this Aria: Amor, tiranno Amor. Serse once more asks Ariodate if he is happy for his daughter Romilda to marry someone equal in rank to the King. Ariodate thinks Serse means Arsamene and happily gives his consent.
Serse tells Romilda that her father has agreed to their marriage but Romilda, trying to put him off, tells him that Arsamene loves her and in fact he has kissed her. Serse, furious, orders his brother to be put to death. Amastre asks Romilda to take a letter to the King, telling her that this will help her.
Amastre bewails her plight, having been abandoned by Serse, who promised to be hers Aria: Cagion son io.
