About Colas Gillet

It is told that Colas Gillet in the year 1597 or 1598 helped Louis de Geer while escaping to Holland. To fool the Spanish guards, Colas changed clothes with de Geer and took his chain and ring. According to a note in an 1937 issue of the 'Vallonättlingen' this chain and ring now is exhibited at the 'Carolina Redeviva' library in Uppsala, Sweden.
