Printed document containing the sentencing of statesman Rombout Hogerbeets (Hoorn 1561 – Wassenaar 1625). Hogerbeets was the pensionary of Leiden, and was tried for conspiracy and treason against the federal government during the political crisis, along with several others. Together with Hugo Grotius, he was sentenced to life imprisonment and forfeiture of all assets. Hogerbeets and Grotius shared a prison cell in Loevestein fortress, and were allowed to be joined by their wives. To his distress, Hogerbeets’ wife soon passed away from illness and he was forced to spend an entire three days with the body of his deceased wife until it was retrieved.When Prince Maurice was succeeded by Frederick Henry in 1625, Hogerbeets was allowed to serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest in Wassenaar.
