The Wolf and Swan of Rosemont

The Rosemont and Roover family intermarried. They were Swan Brethren, and may be the figures in Bosch’s painting ‘Wedding at Cana’.

The Roesmont-Roover Brotherhood and the Wedding at Cana

(Images: Rover family and Magi. St. Janskirk church. Dining hall of the Swan Brethren. Wedding at Cana by Bosch a Swan Brother.)

Ghisburtus van Roesmont was a Dutch nobleman of some importance. His mother was jonkvrouw Adriana Theodorici ROVER. the daughter of Dirk Edmondszn ROOVER. The Roover family appears to descend from one of the Radbot rulers of Holland who was given the name Roover, or Rover due to conquest of the Netherlands. The Roover family would build Montfoort castle one of the most prestigious castles in Holland. These two families were keen on forming a marriage alliance as Arnold Rover married Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis ROESMONT. For this reason I suspect the Roesmont Wolf names came from Roelof the Roover R + Odilia van Montfoort. Perhaps the Roovers owned Wolfhouse where the Roesmonts came to live in 1450.

Ghisburtus was the master of Saint Janskerk, and a member of Lieve-Vrouwe-broederschap that met in Janskerk church. Hieronymus Bosch was a member of the Zwanenbroeders (swan brothers) and was commissioned by the master of Janskerk to do a stained-glass window for the church. The Zwanenbroeders commissioned Bosch to do other work the most important being ‘The Marriage Feast at Cana’. This painting has symbols that relate to the Zwanenbroeders and thus this painting may constitute the only true riddle involving a brotherhood of men and a supper where Jesus is centerpiece. The worship of Our Lady is eluded to in the swan being served up on a platter. The swan is a symbol of Venus, but, with the presence of the crescent moon and the boar’s head, then this Lady is Artemis/Diana who unleashed the Calydonian Boar that was killed by the Arganots. This is interesting as Radbod made a treaty with Grimoald the Merovingian Frank and gave his daughter, Theodelindis in marriage. The Frankish nobles rose up against the usurpation in the palace of the Franks and bid Radbod to intervene with an armed force, which he did.

Above is the oldest Dutch painting in existence. It show four generations of Roover leaders in knights armour being led by Saint George, the pataon saint of knights before Maria. I am entertaining a theory that these Rovers see themselves as Arganots, and may be the source of the name Huguenots, or Haguenots of Hague where King Floris built his castle.

With the discovery of the original spelling of the ROESMONT family, I conclude that the the fictional movie knight, Floris von Rosemondt, is based upon a member of the Roesmont family. Perhaps a producer saw the coat of arms for Roesmont in the hall of Zwanenbroedershuis.

The Knight Rosemondt, a Robin Hood character, was played by Rutger Hauer who was considered Holland’s Errol Flynn. My mother Rosemary and my aunt Lillain, the youngest daughters of Royal Rosamond, both dated Errol Flynn. “Truth is stranger the fiction.” Rosamond, the Frisian Folk Mother, was considered a ruler of Holland and may be a fictional person. But, with the Roesmont of Holland, who knows?

The Roesmonts have dined in the halls of four guilds that I know of, and thus may constitute the oldest lineage of Brothers who made marriage unions within the Brotherhood that kept tiny Holland a sovereign nation to this very day.

Zwanenbroeders are another name for the illustere kind Vrouwe brotherhood. Brotherhood was established in 1318 in s hertogenbosch. The organisation aimed at the worship of Maria. Reason for that was the rising Mariadevotie in the city. Those arose by wonders which were attributed to Maria, where a picture of Maria in the janskathedraaljanskathedraal janskathedraal was at issue. The name zwanenbroeders would be borrowed from the annual banquet, where among others swan on the menu stood.

Little is known about Hieronymus Bosch’s life, though it has been the subject of much speculation. He was born around 1450 as Hieronymus van Aken in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. He named himself after this Brabant city, where he lived and worked throughout his life. His father Antonius was also a painter. As a member of the Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap (Brotherhood of Our Lady) in ‘s-Hertogenbosch he designed an embroidery, a candelabrum and a stained-glass window for the chapel in the St Janskerk. Working there at the same time was Alart Duhameel, the master builder of the chapel and the late Gothic cathedral, which was then under construction. Archives reveal through tax records and other documents, information about financial transactions and family matters which indicate that Bosch led a comfortable life. The only commission for which there is documentary evidence is that by the Burgundian ruler, Philip the Fair, for a large altarpiece with ‘The Last Judgment’.

Zwanenbroeders are another name for the illustere kind Vrouwe brotherhood. Brotherhood was established in 1318 in s hertogenbosch. The organisation aimed at the worship of Maria. Reason for that was the rising Mariadevotie in the city. Those arose by wonders which were attributed to Maria, where a picture of Maria in the janskathedraaljanskathedraal janskathedraal was at issue. The name zwanenbroeders would be borrowed from the annual banquet, where among others swan on the menu stood.
Initially only members had been dovetailed from the clerus the genootschap. Already fast also others were allowed. After the inname of s hertogenbosch by Frederik hendrik in 1629 change the character of the genootschap.
As from 1642 the genootschap existed from 18 catholic and 18 Protestant members. This was a compromise, but it was decided because Willem of oranje member have been, that half catholic and other half had be reformed be. Generally it concerns people with a prominent social position. Among others its member are Willem of oranje and the painter Jeroen bosch. Under the current members are themselves Beatrix queen and crown prince Willem-Alexander.
The genootschap has its own ‘ association bldg. ‘: the ‘ Zwanenbroedershuis ‘ in pine bosch. Since 1483 this has established in the Hinthamerstraat. Current early -neogotische Zwanenbroedershuis date from 1846 and as a museum have been opened for public.

The Brotherhood had two types
of members: ordinary members and sworn members, also called ‘swan-brethren’
because they used to donate a swan for the yearly banquet. Sworn members were
clerics in principle; in fact they were often chosen among the nobility, the mag-
istrates, etc.

As a result, the Brotherhood also functioned as an important social
That may have been the reason why in 1641 the military governor of the
town, Johan-Wolfert van *Brederode (1599–1655), asked to be admitted despite
the fact that he was a Protestant. He made the request not only for himself but
for thirteen others, all Protestant. They were Brederode’s right hand Philip van
Thienen, town commander and deputy governor; Hendrick Bergaigne, Hendrick
Kuysten, Gysbert Pieck van Tienhoven, Andries de Fresne, Adriaan Ploos van
Amstel, Rutger Tullekens, Jacob van Casteren, Otto Copes, Johan Ruysch, Pieter
Lus, Johan Gans van Bommenede, and Lazarus van Zonst.
All were connected
either with the military or with the town administration. In fact, the better half
of the administration applied for membership.
Brederode’s request caused much embarrassment, among Roman Catholics
as well as Protestants. Catholics resented the idea, which they saw as a first step
towards secularisation. Protestants on the other hand saw it as an act of idola-
try. The fact that Andries de Fresne, Johan Gans and Otto Copes were Elders
of the ‘Walloon Church’ (‘ É wallonne’ or French Huguenot Church), and
Ploos van Amstel and Van Zonst of the Dutch Reformed Church, caused addi-
tional scandal. The Brotherhood on the other hand had little choice—rejection
of Brederode’s proposal would almost certainly lead to its total suppression.
In spite, therefore, of the dissenting voices of an important minority (several
of whom left the Brotherhood in protest) they decided that the Brotherhood
would be mixed—eventually the sworn members would be half Catholic, half
Protestant (even if for the moment there were still 28 Catholics against only 13
Protestants)—and would pursue its activities ‘in so far as they are not contrary
to the laws and religion of the United Provinces’. Roman Catholics on the other
hand would not be vexed in their conscience or hindered in their private worship.

Radbod or Redbad (d.719) was the duke (or king) of Frisia from 680 to 719. He is often considered the last independent ruler of Frisia (or Friesland) before Frankish domination.

While his father, Duke Aldegisel (or Eadgils, Aldgisl which can be translated as ‘Old Whip’), had welcomed Christianity into his realm, Radbod attempted to extirpate the religion and free the Frisians from subjugation to the Merovingian kingdom of the Franks. In 689, Radbod was, however, defeated by Pippin of Herstal in the battle of Dorestad and compelled to cede West Frisia (Frisia Citerior, meaning Nearer Frisia, from the Scheldt to the Vlie) to the Franks.
Between 690 and 692, Utrecht fell into the hands of Pippin of Herstal. This gave the Franks control of important trade routes on the Rhine to the North Sea. Some sources say that, following this defeat, Radbod retreated, in 697, to the island of Heligoland, others say he retreated to the part of Holland that is still known as Friesland.
On Pippin’s death in 714, Radbod took the initiative again. He forced Saint Willibrord and his monks to flee and advanced as far as Cologne, where he defeated Charles Martel, Pippin’s natural son, in 716. Eventually, however, Charles prevailed and compelled the Frisians to submit. Radbod died in 719, but for some years his successors struggled against the Frankish power.

During the second journey of Saint Boniface to Rome, Willibrord tried to convert Radbod, but not succeeding he returned to Fontenelle. It is said that Radbod was nearly baptised, but refused when he was told that he would not be able to find any of his ancestors in Heaven after his death, since he preferred spending eternity in Hell with his pagan ancestors than in Heaven with strangers. This legend is also told with Willibrord being replaced with Wulfram (or Vulfran), a monk and ex-archbishop of Sens.

Willibrord tried this while on a Carolingian-sponsored mission into Frisia with the express purpose of trying to convert the pagan Frisians living there in the hope that, once they had converted to Christianity, the Franks could gain control of the important trade port Dorestad, which they had up to that point been unable to do.

The previous feudatory, Janne of collaborate, have died. Roelof build here as a feudatory of the earl of the Netherlands a castle that he ‘Heulestein’ calls. The Viscount of Montfoort is not happy with the continuing attempts of the earl of the Netherlands its extend power area and the understanding between Roelof and its brother Zweder goes not ahead. The earl of the Netherlands even quarters a Dutch bezetting on Heulestein. But Zweders zoon hendrik are Dutch disposed and as from the moment that he succeeds its father, the family draws the rover jointly at strijde. In 1345 sneuvelt Roelof in the army of earl Willem IV of the Netherlands in the friese Warns. With him fall Viscount Jan the rover of Montfoort and Willem the rover, the founder of castle the Nesse. Roelofs zoon hendrik return heavily wounded to Heulestein, but repair. For the memory he lets make a painting on which its father and cousins have kneeled for Maria have been represented. The family the rover is meanwhile a power factor on the border of founds and the Netherlands becomes and in their striving towards an independent position they undertake also strooptochten by founds. In 1353 the army of the bishop besieges castle Heulestein. The citadel is taken and is devastated, but also rapidly built. After the death of hendrik the castle comes in 1361 in the hands of its sister Hadewich. Also she has the castle in leen of the earl of the Netherlands and supports the earl therefore in the war of 1373-1375 with founds. In the winter of 1374 and 1375 a Dutch bezetting on Heulestein has been quartered. Hadewich do not live on the castle. In 1376 its zoon draws Jan van Zuylen in Heulestein, without authorisation of Hadewich and its second spouse. They accuse the Viscount of Montfoort of it that he has incited Jan, but the Viscount denies. Eventually Jan he promises van Zuylen that the leen will transfer to Hubrecht of Montfoort, the brother of the Viscount. Thus Heulestein in the hands of the family the rover remains.Viscount Jan II of Montfoort are thesaurier and city holder of the Netherlands under Jacoba of Bavaria. It is a restless time: Jacoba are in war with its uncle Jan concerning the county the Netherlands. In 1418, as Jacoba to the losing hand, asks the Viscount authorisation is to be allowed break Heulestein finished. He is frightened for a hostile Dutch troop power this way dense at its own Montfoort. At the old castle area a farm is built. The current farm dates from 1659. the place where the castle has stood, is still recognizable by the grachten.

I have Catherine of Holland (daughter of Floran V of Holland [1254-1296])who was married N. de Montfort de Rover. Another Carherine of Holland(daughter of Johann I of Holland [1281-1299]) was married Zweden I burggrafof Montfort de Rover. I have 3 questions: 1) Is this information right?; 2)what way are these two persons relatives (if any)?; is there any relationsberween Montfort de Rover family and house Montfort-d’Amoury?d

Establishment in 1318In the year 1318 the offici’le establishment took place of a brotherhood for the ere van Maria in s hertogenbosch. The original oprichtingsacte have been kept remained and are themselves in the file of the brotherhood.The members of the brotherhood met in their own vault in the St Janskerk where they among other things vespers fourth. Later they built to twice a new vault; the last is the current saint sacrament vault beside the they chancel. Beside the worship of Maria the brotherhood was active in the field of the poor relief. Also the brotherhood has to a great extent contributed as from the 14e centuries to the development of s hertogenbosch as an important centre of late medieval music. In the 15e centuries took place as a result of the institute of outside members, an enormous extension of the number of members to far in the current Belgi and Germany. In the course of the 16th century the number of members decreased drastically, whereas when also the mental devotionele element lost meaning.Meetings in its own house in the form of loving meals with music will take an always more important place. Under the members of the brotherhood one in 15e and the 16th century fameuze persons of numerous nature finds, which link here Willem of oranje as well as Jeroen cannot remain bosch certainly unmentioned. Also important lines like of nassau, Van Egmond, Van Wassenaar, Van Brederode, Bronkhorst and Van Bylandt had been represented in the brotherhood.In the eighty-year-old war the brotherhood experienced difficult times, but also after the conquest of pine bosch in 1629 Fredrik hendrik she continued exist. In 1641 the Protestant governor of s hertogenbosch with some of its friends admission to the brotherhood requested. Their request was remunerated. There new statutes, which stipulated among others, came that the brotherhood would exist as of now from 18 members (broeders) in the rooms catholic and 18 members in the reformational line. This is until now the case. Beside these 36 Broeders the brotherhood knows now incl candidaatleden and candidandi.Royal membersAnd to royal persons the eretitel in addition is of Zwanenbroeder is offered. The Illustre kind Vrouwe brotherhood ensure for its secular materi’le and immateri’le cultural heritage, promote the mutual Christian solidarity and the fraternal link, and keep thereby always eye for the developments and problems in the modern time.Of the contributions which the members of the brotherhood in the form of contribution and grants pay annually the major part at behoeve of realisation of its idee’le and its cultural aims zomede is applied for the maintenance of the Zwanenbroedershuis including the collectie.ZwanenbroedershuisSince 1483 its own house has had the brotherhood to the Hinthamerstraat at s hertogenbosch, on approximately 100 meters distance of the sint Jan lain and therefore near its vault. The original house, which was cultivated partially in the 16th century in Renaissance style, collapsed in 1839, mainly. In 1846, the house now existing in neogotische style arose on the same spot. It is a very early example of neogotische construction art in our country both to exterieur and interieur. The architect is J.H. LaffertŽe. The house, which acts tevens as a museum and as such has been incorporated in the Dutch museum register, is a realm monument.FileThe file of the brotherhood has been given in preservation to the Brabantine historical information centre. The inventory is realise on (will by means of ‘ documents ‘ to zoeken ‘ commonly ‘; give as zoekterm on: ‘ illustre kind vrouwe brotherhood ‘).

In the vitrine large chancel books also nine lie from the sixteenth century which contains polyphonic music: seven graphemes and two press. The manuscripts are very particular: beside this zevental in s hertogenbosch are themselves music in the Netherlands only still in Leiden six similar chancel books with polyphonic. Three of the graphemes of the brotherhood from the work shop from the boasted muziekkopiist Petrus originating Alamire are. Alamire were a multi-purpose character, which mainly worked for the Habsburgse court, but also for several other frost houses and banker families in Europe. Three other chancel books, as well as the polyphonic music in the further gregorian codex Smijers is, of the hand of Philippus the Spina. The Spina worked thirty-five years as a zanger for the brotherhood, but had s hertogenbosch during the picture storm of august 1566 suddenly leave because of sympathies with the new belief. Beside the polyphonic chancel books in the file of the brotherhood find graphemes still six with gregorian, has been among others written by the Broeders of malicious living, the forward rate agreement-delicate of s hertogenbosch.The appeared as accompaniment of in 2002, book: “given pine Sangeren” of Véronique Roelvink seven work have been taken by the Egidius quartet ( Click on mentioned below left to hear some examples:

Jan van Wintelroy: “already pine tijt now doloreus, the mey staet are clean”

Anonymously: “o Salutaris Hostia”

Anonymously: “now sijt willecome”

Unique also the collection of eighteen tinnen drinkkannen from the sixteenth and seventeenth century is. The kannen were used by the Broeders during their meals to drink wine from; every sworn Broeder had own drinkbeker be. On the abdomen of the kannen an image of the lelie between the thorns with the word Sicut stands. On deksels of the kannen is the name of the user and weapon has been engraved. The brotherhood has now still the kannen of among others Willem of oranje and the sepulchres of neighbours (Frederik, Floris and Maximilaan van Egmond). Tinnen drinkkannen became obsolete at a certain moment and was replaced by glazen. The brotherhood has still a collection glass work, which comes from the end from the 19th century.

End nineteenth century left the brotherhood 560-delig a servies in the colours blue and blank designs by the Porceleyne bottle at dig. The servies was made between 1881 and 1885 and the different components contain the emblem of the brotherhood (the lelie between the thorns) and the zinspreuk Sicut Lilium inter Spinas. The servies has been used a lot of years during the fraternal meal, but the most beautiful pieces, among which two large soup tureens are themselves, nowadays in the vitrinekast.In the large room neogotische a alcove is visit. Neogotische the character of the zwanenbroedershuis is retrieve also at other places. Thus neogotische a stove on first deepening, which is in the winter still in use, is himself. Several neogotische castes decorate the partitions of the different rooms. Two of the castes has been given by the ridderschap of noord-Brabant, with which the Illustre kind Vrouwe brotherhood maintain good contacts.

In the rooms stand be based on wide fifty ancient, of which foresee the backs be of the family weapons of members of the brotherhood. In the Zwanenbroedershuis family weapons are see at a lot of places. This way there are the weapon paintings which our tones which were in previous centuries member of the brotherhood and the weapon wapenborden with the weapons of the current members. Beside this everyone visible weapon far tone, there are the weapon books; senior has been moored in 1606. in the later weapon books the weapons of the Broeders has been signed; with the signature the membership was ratified officially. Several objects in the house show Zwanenbroeders. There its paintings of queen Juliana and princess Beatrix, and busts of Willem of oranje, queen Wilhelmina and prince hendrik. Wilhelmina and hendrik schonken the brotherhood in 1904, gilded zilveren jumbo derrick eel, of which foresees the lid is of a swan opvliegende. The jumbo derrick eel is used year still every during the fraternal meal for the dronk on Her Majesty. Also remainders of the medieval brotherhood house are still kept in the current Zwanenbroedershuis: two of the shutters which determined part pand modernised of in the years thirty of the sixteenth century that Gijsbert of of the poorten the Broeders had given. Also schilderijtje in the current Zwanenbroedershuis, which show the then house in its full glorie, hang. The house drew obviously the attention of several artists, because several images of have been confessed. The current Zwanenbroedershuis breathe an environment of secular traditions. One of the oldest habits to which the Illustre kind Vrouwe brotherhood attach still much value, common consuming a meal is. Once per year this happens in a massive manner in the form of the fraternal meal, which is still kept in its own house.

Both swan and boar are forbidden food to Jews, but in this picture both are marked with a crescent, the sign of heresy. (Although the crescent symbol properly belonged to the Moors, the Middle Ages did not make fine distinctions among Jews, Moors, heretics and sodomites.) The only way to make sense of this is to assume that almost all the guests are honorary Christians, although they are Jews in the Bible story. The exceptions are those who are marked out in some way, like the man in the lower right corner, who is wearing a Jewish hat. He also appears to be holding his left hand behind him, a sign of duplicity—the typical attitude of Judas in paintings of the Last Supper. The swan is an emblem of loose living as well as paganism—Bosch puts a swan flag on his bucolic whorehouses—and yet swans were eaten at a ceremonial dinner once a year by the Dear Woman Brotherhood, to which Bosch belonged. The swan, in fact, is a symbol of the Virgin inherited from Aphrodite, and the boar in this picture has a halo. (Both platters are gilt, but that is not usually apparent in reproductions.)
