show me the A map of Leiden in the Netherlands, surrounded by Spanish siege and liberated by the Auriacs in 1574

Sure! In our museum, we have several maps that show the city of Leiden in the Netherlands during a very important moment in its history.

Back in the year 1574, the city of Leiden was under siege by the Spanish army. The Dutch people living in Leiden were fighting for their freedom from Spanish rule. The siege lasted for a long time, and the people of Leiden were trapped inside the city walls.

One of the maps we have shows the city of Leiden surrounded by the Spanish army during the siege. You can see the soldiers and their camps around the city. It must have been a very difficult and scary time for the people of Leiden.

Another map shows the moment when the city was finally liberated by a group of heroes called the Auriacs. They bravely fought against the Spanish army and managed to break the siege. This was a huge victory for the people of Leiden and for the Dutch in their struggle for independence.

These maps are precious historical artifacts that help us understand and remember the bravery and perseverance of the people of Leiden during this important chapter in their history. They show us how a city can come together and overcome challenges in the face of adversity.
