At the height of his career, he and Prince Maurice formed a dream team: together they ruled the Republic. Yet things went wrong between the two men. What happened and how did the Amersfoort native Johan van Oldenbarnevelt meet his end? Is that why he became so famous and well-known? Historian Bart Wiekart can tell you all about it.
