Medemblik, Netherlands II - LesleyBray

Knights Hall in Radboud Castle. In the beginning the Knight's Hall was the place where the soldiers of the castle (about 20 men) lived and slept. Later a regional court was situated here and the landlord of the castle was at the same time the presiding judge. People who were found guilty were punished by strokes with the stick. One of the executioners was a man called Jan van Teylingen who made the portraits hanging on the walls as a hobby.
