Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates the pejorative meanings of the word 'Burgundy'in Guelders during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and the resistance against integration into the Burgundian Netherlands. It examines the identification with the Empire and Germany during this period. The chapter focuses mainly on two sources: first, a chronicle of the duchy written by Willem van Berchen in the second half of the fifteenth century;and secondly, a history of Guelders written by Henricus Aquilius about 1560. Both authors, each in a completely different way, connected the history of their own town or duchy with the Empire and Germany.

Keywords: Burgundy; Duchy; fifteenth century; Germany; Guelders; Henricus Aquilius
