Feesten te Brielle

Reportage about the festivities in Brielle to celebrate the capture of Den Briel by the Geuzen, exactly 350 years ago.

In this film about the festivities in Brielle, Queen Wilhelmina plays an important role: she inspects a military guard, receives flowers, and unveils a plaque. The Queen Mother Emma and Princess Juliana are also on hand. Due to the large number of day-visitors in Brielle, crowds of pedestrians get stuck in the streets. The capture of Den Briel by the Geuzen is meticulously recreated in an elaborate historical game. At the end, the Queen holds a speech.
