5th of June,1568 : Executions of Lamoral, Count of Egmont, Prince of Gavere & Philip van Montmorency , Count of Horne

Following a wave of unrest the duke of Alba had the Count arrested along with the Count of Hoorne on charges of heresy, and imprisoned even though they were Catholic .Both were put on trial and the duke had them executed.
The executions sparked the Eight Years War or Dutch Revolt against Spanish rule.
The Count of Egmonts remains are buried at the Egmont Vault at the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Zottegem.
Philip van Montmorency , Count of Horne was buried at Sint-Martinuskerk in Weert.

There is a statue of the two in the park of the Petit Sablon in Brussels, in front of the Egmont Palace. Orginally it was supposed to be placed on the Grand Place on the exact spot where they had been executed.The two are depicted on their way to the scaffold, embraced. One of the historical figures that are depicted on statues around them is William the Taciturn.

I omitted that the Duke of Alba had both Counts beheaded at the Grand Place in Brussels

The arrival of Alba also caused Margaret of Parma to resign as Regent the duchess left for Italy.

Did Sophie of Württemberg remain Lutheran or did she convert to Calvinism upon marriage?
