As mentioned in my last blog post, Marco and I spent our 5th anniversary in Breda. One of the places we visited was the Grote Kerk (Church of Our Lady) which was built between 1410 (!) and 1547. The church serves as a mausoleum for the first generations of the Nassau family (a total of 17 family members being buried there). After the Spanish invaded Breda, the Nassau family began to use the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) in Delft instead.
Here are some of the photos which I took of this magnificent church:
Nearby is a tomb with Engelbrecht II and his wife. For a full picture, consult the Dutch National Image bank. There are four men (including one pictured below) supporting a marble slab. Underneath the slab are statues of Engelbrecht II and his wife, in death.
