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.

Is there a difference between the Dutch and Belgian nobility?
