Part 2, Chapter 39 Summary

The marriage is accomplished, but it causes the death of the girl's mother, which Sancho questions as a little overboard. A relative of the queen, the giant Malambruno, comes to the grave. He changes Antonomasia into a brass monkey and Don Clavijo into a metal crocodile, and he proclaims it will take Quixote to come fight him. His last act is to cause the twelve duennas and the countess to grow beards. The countess finishes her story and faints.
