ca. 1475 - 'Engelbrecht I (+1442) and Jan IV (+1475) van Nassau, Lords of Breda and the Lek', Grote Kerk, Breda, province of Noord-Brabant, Netherlands

Jan IV of Nassau.

 

Magnificent megalomaniac monument to Engelbrecht (+1442) and Jan (+1475), Lords of Breda, and their wives. It was restored in the second half of the 19th century, e.g. St. George's head, arm and helmet are 19th century additions, and the Madonna replaces and older statue.
