Floris the First is dead?

The beloved count Floris the First of Holland is killed in battle.

While our count was at battle against the men of Utrecht, those horrible men of Utrecht, he was murdered together with hundreds of our husbands, brothers and sons. And the biggest evil is that they were killed while they were resting. He was born in 1025 and assassinated in 1061 AD. He leaves behind his dear wife Geertruida and his children Adelheid, Dirk and Bertha. May they rest in peace.

Geert de Boer Executed

Reactie Jennifer Horman

Geert a 25 year old young farmer, working on his master’s land was a normal serf, and although he had no rights nor wealth nor life expectancy beyond 30 years, he gave a part of his harvest to the landlord, Sjors in exchange for protection from the landlord.

He only had a cow named Berta and a small piece of land north of Sjors’ mansion. Geert’s whole family were slaughtered by barbaric scoundrels recently. After the butchering, Geert went to his master and pleaded for work in exchange for protection.

Geert and Berta were lifting stones for the expansion of Sjors’ mansion and were just walking over the moat across the bridge, Berta collapsed the bridge with her weight. Panicking other beasts destroying Sjors chattel.

Sjors in a statement to the Duke said because Geerts has no means of paying for it, he should be executed the next day at the gallows.
