Baron de Sainte-Aldegonde, Dutch Calvinist theologian and statesman. Between 1562 and 1569 he won fame by his Protestant and nationalist writings, of which the most celebrated was the satirical De biënkorf der heilige roomsche kerche (1569; Eng. tr., 1579). About 1566–7 he took up arms as an anti-Spanish leader and became a close friend of William the Silent. After 1585 he devoted himself to literary activity, most notably to his Dutch translation of the Psalms.
