Frederick Henry and Ernst Casimir of Nassau-Dietz at the Siege of ’s Hertogenbosch, Pauwels van Hillegaert, c. 1629 - c. 1635
Prince Frederick Henry and his cousin Count Ernst Casimir pose triumphantly on their horses before ’s-Hertogenbosch. Frederick Henry points his commander’s staff at the Habsburg-occupied city now being stormed by Dutch forces. It was not for nothing that he was nicknamed ‘the conqueror of cities’. He captured a series of cites from the Spanish. The retaking of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in 1629 was one of the most important.
