Margareta van Godewijck (1627-77)

Margareta van Godewijck (1627-77) lived in an important time and place in the scope of European history. Her work gives us a glimpse into the life of a young Dutch lady around the time of the Thirty Years’ War and the end of the Eighty Years’ War (1568–1648) in which the Netherlands became independent from the Spanish Hapsburgs. Like many young women in early modern Europe, she learned Latin because her father was an administrator at a Latin school. Evidence suggests that she learned Greek, Italian, French, and English in addition to Latin.
