    The purges of the city governments were not everywhere equally thoroughgoing and, of course, there was little mention of popular influence later on, as the new regents shared the abhorrence of the old ones of real democratic reforms. Thus Aglionby describes the proverbial cleanliness of the Dutch in an amused tone: The married Women and maids are very fair and chaste. He was buried in Westminster Abbey, but his heart, by his special wish, was placed in a silver casket under the sun-dial at Moor Park, near his favourite window seat.

History[ edit ] Until the 16th century, the Low Countries —corresponding roughly to the present-day NetherlandsBelgiumand Luxembourg —consisted of a number of duchiescounties, and prince-bishopricsalmost all of which were under the supremacy of the Holy Roman Empirewith the exception of the county of Flanders, most of which was under the Kingdom of France.
