THE RELICS OF GENERAL CHASSE--A TALE OF ANTWERP 

by Anthony Trollope 

That Belgium is now one of the European kingdoms, living by its own
laws, resting on its own bottom, with a king and court, palaces and
parliament of its own, is known to all the world.  And a very nice
little kingdom it is; full of old towns, fine Flemish pictures, and
interesting Gothic churches.  But in the memory of very many of us
who do not think ourselves old men, Belgium, as it is now called--in
those days it used to be Flanders and Brabant--was a part of
Holland; and it obtained its own independence by a revolution.  In
that revolution the most important military step was the siege of
Antwerp, which was defended on the part of the Dutch by General
Chasse, with the utmost gallantry, but nevertheless ineffectually.
