A Novel on William the Silent, Prince of Orange Nassau, Vol.1

Written by Marjorie Bowen

William of Orange, also known as the Taciturn, received his education at the Royal court before becoming Holland’s stadtholder, or governor, of the deeply devout Roman Catholic Philip II, King of Spain and the Lowlands.

William, though a nominal Roman Catholic at the time, determines to help the persecuted Protestants and in the process marries the Protestant Princess Anne of Saxony. But will Anne truly be a helpmate for her husband? When pressed, he opposes King Philip and does not avoid an armed struggle, not only turning to the God of his mother but also growing in courage and the conviction that God has chosen him to be a faithful instrument to gain freedom for Christ’s Church.

William uses all his possessions to pay an army or mercenaries to help him, but is it of any use? His brothers, Lodewyk, John, Adolphus, and Henry, also give all they have for the cause of freedom of a country which can hardly be called their own. Behind these heroes, a faithful praying mother, Juliana of Stolberg, waits for the latest news from her sons at the ancestral German castle of Dillenburg.

Paperback, 354 pages, Some black and white illustrations.
