Deventer, 16 april 2021
Vanuit de geboortestad van Breenbegrh een verbetering op de nu gepresenteerde tekst.
Het gegeven dat de toren van Chia op Sardinë ligt is natuurlijk onjuist.
Breenbergh was is dienst van Paolo Giordano Orsini II die landerijen had bij Bracciano maar ook bij Bomarzo. Tussen Bomarzo en Orte ligt Chia.
Ik zal u graag de kaart van noord Italië willen tonen om de plaats te duiden. Is er een mogelijkheid
