Historical background


BELGIUM - ABBEY OF THORN - DAISY BREDERODE

(1557-1577)

Thorn is located north of the Bishopric of Liège between Maaseik and Roermond (Limburg Dutch). A monastery was founded in the tenth century by the Earl and his wife Ansfrid Hilsonde. This monastery was then transformed into chapter of canons. Abbess had the title of princess empire and the abbey struck coins from the early eleventh century. However, strikes stopped and resumed as soon as the Abbess Marguerite de Brederode (1557-1577). She was accused of striking coins too low weight.
