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!
