  Mas ¿quiénes eran éstos? ¿De dónde habían venido? ¿Cuál era el nombre de su misterioso jefe? He aquí el enigma que todos querían explicar y que nadie podía resolver hasta entonces, aunque se observase desde luego que la armadura del señor feudal había desaparecido del sitio que antes ocupara, y posteriormente varios labradores hubiesen afirmado que el capitán de aquella desalmada gavilla marchaba a su frente cubierto con una que, de no ser la misma, se le asemejaba en un todo.   More: who were these? Wherefrom had they come? What was the name of his mysterious boss?
