Exhibition I, Mary of Guelders

From 13 October 2018 to 6 January 2019, Museum Het Valkhof will open its doors to the exhibition I, Mary of Guelders - The duchess and her extraordinary prayer book. It will be the first extensive exposition on the life of this almost modern and self-assured medieval noblewoman, who is sometimes likened to Máxima, current queen of the Netherlands, as there are many parallels between their respective lives.

The exhibition is based on new and multidisciplinary research and will feature over 100 artefacts, including top pieces from international collections that have not been on display in the Netherlands before, which will have the effect of immersing the visitor in the story of Mary’s life.
