Riddertoernooi

Riddertoernooi

Archeonlaan 1, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands

With the death of the Dutch Count Willem IV in 1345, the 'Hoekse en Kabeljauwse twisten' started in Holland, which lasted well into the fifteenth century. The conflict started as a struggle for supreme power in the county. This was not clearly arranged after the death of Willem IV. Willem was succeeded by his sister, Margaret of Bavaria, but her son, Willem V, also gained administrative power. This led to tensions and resulted in a war between the two in 1349.

Deputy Knights of the Hoeken (corners) and Kabeljauwen (cods) come to Archeon to battle the dispute with the knight tournament. Who do you support in the fight?
