How to use Barneveldt in a sentence
The prince carried the day; Barneveldt was executed, and Grotius imprisoned in this castle, where he was kept nearly two years.Dikes and Ditches | Oliver Optic
On Monday morning, May 13, 1619, Barneveldt was informed that he was to be executed upon that day.
Grotius also gained the esteem of Barneveldt, the grand pensionary, in whose fate he was afterward involved.
Uniformly protesting against the competency of the tribunal, Barneveldt defended himself with great firmness and ability.
At a subsequent time, a son of Barneveldt having been condemned to death, his mother applied to Prince Maurice, for his pardon.
