Nassauday, Breda 6 June 2010
GeA-educatie took part in 'de Blijde Incomste'
Results of the photocompetition
The first edition attracted many visitors and generated colorful press releases
In 1406 Duke Engelbrecht of Nassau (left side in picture) arrived in Breda
with his young bride Johanna of Polanen
Johanna's beautifully painted gilded belt-clip
The event settled a rich tradition
Mayor van de Velden (left side in the picture)
welcomed the Nassaus in traditional costume
Johanna's jester seeked contact with her white horse...
...who answered in a positive manner
From allover people came to Breda
to catch a glimpse of glory or to pick a grain
There was no absolution...
...for the heretic and the witch
Their destiny was not very enviable
and effectively deterrent
The Blijde Incomste attracted many noblemen to the city...
...and so will it be forever!
