Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › Academic › peer-review
Just like other elites in early-modern Europe the Dutch elite of the Frisian gentry struggled with the process of dying out since the 18th century. Which factors were responsible for this trend and how did these noble families in Frisia try to persist their power, wealth and prestige by changing their strategies of marriage? Comparisons are made with demographic research on the British peerage (T. Hollingsworth) and gentry (L. Stone) and the patriciate of the town of Geneva (L. Henry).
