Flandes before the uprising.  Not against Spain, against his natural lord Felipe II. Really was a civil war between catholics flamencos (aid by Spain, that pay the war and put very few soldiers and members of the Orange House, normally using mercenaries.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some.
