Les Genealogies et anciennes descentes des forestiers et comtes de Flandre,

Here, depicted with weapons and shield is:
Baudouin VIIº called a la Hache (1093-1119)
12th Count of Flanders from 1111 to 1119
Pieter Baltens de Costere, known as Custodias (1525-1598)
His career and artistic development and that of the Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder were closely intertwined.
In fact, in 1550-1551 Bruegel worked as an assistant to Peeter Baltens.
He is recognised as one of the main inventors of the genre of the village scene in Flemish and Dutch art.
