About Margaretha van Mechelen

Margaretha van Mechelen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Margaretha van Mechelen (circa 1580, Lier – 17 May 1662, The Hague) was a South Dutch noblewoman and (from c.1600 to c.1610) the mistress of Maurice of Nassau, Prince of Orange, with whom she had 3 sons:

Willem of Nassau, lord of the Lek

Louis of Nassau, lord of den Lek and Beverweerd

Maurice of Nassau

Though Maurice refused to marry her (probably because she was a Catholic and only from the minor nobility), he did threaten to do so from his death bed (and to legitimise and marry off their bastard children). This would threaten his half-brother Frederick Henry's place in the succession and so Frederick Henry summoned Amalia of Solms-Braunfels and married her a few days before Maurice's death.
