Duchy of Brabant in 1477

Historical context
Brabant of the States (Dutch: Staats-Brabant) was the northern part of the Duchy of Brabant, most of the present province of North Brabant. The Generality Lands (dutch: Generaliteitslanden) were about one fifth of the territories of the Dutch Republic or United Provinces of the Netherlands and were directly governed by the States-General of the Netherlands (Dutch: States-General).

Unlike the seven provinces Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Guelders, Overijssel, Friesland and Groningen, these territories were not represented in the central government. From an economic point of view, they were exploited with heavy taxes and levies. As one author puts it: "Back in the Dutch lap, these so-called Generality countries were for a long time governed as a sort of internal colonies, in which Catholics were seen as second-class citizens."


Anna married at the age of 25 on May 9, 1811 in Drunen with Johannes Vesters, 29 years old, christened on September 30, 1781 in Helvoirt.
