Part 2, Chapter 38 Summary

Countess Trifaldi, who apparently takes her name from her skirt fashion, advances with her twelve duennas, all their faces covered in veils. She first ascertains that Quixote and Sancho are present. Then, she begins her story. The countess is in charge of the Infanta Antonomasia. The countess's ward is very beautiful and attracts the attention of a lower knight named Don Clavijo, who cajoles the countess for her favor. Antonomasia becomes pregnant, much to Trifaldi's horror, and they devise a plan for marriage.
