Continued from Part 12.
The supposed Sandra having produced the Royal Locket of Authority, proving that she is the real Princess Yonda, she and Count de Wex make plans to locate and rescue the real Sandra. A courier arrives, informing them that Sandra is being held in a deserted castle at Ormand. With a platoon of light cavalry at their backs, Yonda and de Wex race to Sandra's rescue. They surprise and overcome Sandra's captors, but, to de Wex's shock, it is Yonda being held captive, and the real Sandra was his companion all along! Yonda explains that she had earlier had a copy made, of the Locket of Authority, and given it to Sandra.
Back at the palace, Yonda asks Sandra for one more service: prevent spies from the neighboring kingdom of Resbia from learning of Gavonia's fortifications. Sandra dyes her hair blonde and, armed with a fake passport, in her new identity as Marie Montell, drives in an elegant automobile to the capital of Resbia. She gains a meeting with the Premier, and offers to sell him information on Gavonia's defenses.
