For Dutch posters, a few episodes of Michiel van Erp's programme Hollands Welvaren.

An episode with Count Cecil John of Limburg-Stirum and his vibrant, lovely wife Countess Machteld, née Hooykaas (an archeologist) who is a rather good storyteller: 'en daar lag de tuinman dood... bij de vruchtenkelder'.

They show their Rotterdam residence Schoonoord, which the countess inherited from her stephfather, Jacob Mees (of the banking family). Apparently she chased a burglar out of the house twice. She reveals that her grandfather was an extramarital child of king Willem III, though they bleeped the name of the king on the countess request afterwards. The count and countess were introduced to each other by a mutual friend, a member of the Van Vollenhoven family.

And an episode about the lively Ambachtsvrouwe of Kloetinge, Mrs. Jeanne van Dijk van 't Velde, née Jkvr. Radermacher Schorer. Her late husband was the intendant of the Dutch palaces during the reign of Queen Juliana:

She mentions in the episode 'sweet Juliana' and recollects how the queen usually wore fake jewels that often went missing.

Cornelis de Graeff (1671-1719) was a Canon of St. Pieter at Utrecht.
At Ilpenstein Castle he had an art collection.
One of the paintings Cornelis owned was Jacob Blessing the Sons of Joseph by Rembrandt.

Wednesday 15 August 2018 saw the death of Hugo graaf van Zuylen van Nijevelt. His eldest son Philippe will become the new count. Because of this Philippe's spouse - the Grootmeesteres- will be a countess: Maria Louise Alexandra gravin van Zuylen van Nijevelt née jonkvrouw den Beer Poortugael.

Under Napoléon Philip Julius van Zuylen van Nijevelt was created Comte de l'Empire. Back then he was the highest functionary serving under Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte and Hortense de Beauharnais (King and Queen of Holland 1806-1810).

By Royal Decree of October 17th 1822 King Willem I of the Netherlands recognized the family Van Zuylen van Nijevelt in the Nobility of the Netherlands with the title baron (barones) for all and the title of graaf from eldest son to eldest son.
