Gent History

4.3 7


Archaeological evidence shows human presence in the region of the confluence of Scheldt and Lys going back as far as the Stone Age and the Iron Age.[5] Most historians believe that the older name for Ghent, 'Ganda', is derived from the Celtic word 'ganda' which means confluence.[5] There are no written records of the Roman period but archaeological research confirms that the region of Ghent was further inhabited.

When the Franks invaded the Roman territories (from the end of the 4th century and well into the 5th century) they brought their language with them and Celtic and Latin were replaced by Old Dutch.

Around 650 Saint Amand founded two abbeys in Ghent: the Saint Peter Abbey and the St. Bavo's Abbey. The city grew from several nuclei, the abbeys and a commercial centre. Around 800 Louis the Pious, son of Charlemagne, appointed Einhard, the biographer of Charlemagne, as abbot ...

I am so fascinated by these biauteful old buildings/castles -- perhaps it comes as a result of living in such a "young" country in comparison! Being able to visit as many as I did while living in Europe was one of the very best of times for me! I do love this old castle! Terrific captures and history as always, Indrani!

Ah ce qu’on va s’ennuyer de lui !

Le petit monde politique provincial ne sera plus jamais pareil à la suite de la démission surprise du jovial Sinistre de l’Éducation (Vous êtes surpris ? Vraiment ?). On va regretter son immense charisme, son attachante bonhomie, son sens inné de la répartie, son intégrité sans faille. Qui d’autre pourra nous égayer avec des déclarations subtiles à propos des fouilles à nu très très respectueuses et sur le peu d’importance d’avoir des livres dans les bibliothèques scolaires ? Qui va nous passionner avec ses histoires juteuses de primes en tous genres ? Il n’y aura donc plus personne pour nous faire divertir, dans ce Fouvernement ? (À part, maybe, l’aimable Sinistre des Transports ?).

 

 

Dieu qu’on va s’ennuyer… Espérons, comme dirait l’homme de la rue, qu’il y en aura d’autres plus jeunes plus fous, pour faire danser ...

Gent

5 1


Ghent (English pronunciation: /ˈɡɛnt/; Dutch: Gent, pronounced [ʝɛnt]; French: Gand, pronounced: [ɡɑ̃]; and formerly Gaunt in English; from the Classic Latin term Candia or Gandia meaning landlock by the confluence of rivers by the union of the Celtic term "Cand" and Latin "ia" land) is a city and a municipality located in the Flemish region of Belgium. It is the capital and biggest city of the East Flanders province. The city started as a settlement at the confluence of the Rivers Scheldt and Lys and in the Middle Ages became one of the largest and richest cities of northern Europe. Today it is a busy city with a port and a university. Although many of Belgium's visitors overlook Ghent, its beauty is often compared to the more well-known Bruges.

The municipality comprises the city of Ghent proper and the towns of Afsnee, Desteldonk, Drongen, Gentbrugge, Ledeberg, Mariakerke, Mendonk, Oostakker, Sint-Amandsberg, Sint-Denijs-Westrem, Sint-Kruis-Winkel, ...

Brussel (Nederlands en Afrikaans), Frans: Bruxelles, Duits: Brüssel, Engels: Brussels) is die hoofstad en politieke, ekonomiese en kulturele sentrum van België met 'n oppervlakte van 32,61 vierkante kilometer en 157 673 inwoners (1 Januarie 2010). Saam met 18 ander stede en gemeentes vorm Brussel 'n metropolitaanse gebied met sowat een miljoen oorwegend Franssprekende inwoners wat van hierdie histories Nederlandssprekende stad tans een van die grootste Franssprekende agglomerasies buite Frankryk asook die mees noordelike stad van die Romaanse taal- en kultuurgebied in Europa maak. Vanweë sy rol as Belgiese hoofstad is Brussel nogtans amptelik tweetalig, waarby sommige openbare instellings ook Duitse benamings het.

Die stad vervul sowel nasionale funksies as administratiewe hoofstad van die Gewes Brussel-Hoofstad (Brusselse Hoofstedelike Gewes of Région de Bruxelles-Capitale) en die Franse en Vlaamse Gemeenskappe van België, asook internasionale funksies as die administratiewe hoofstad van die Europese Unie, as die setel van 120 internasionale organisasies en 159 ambassades ...
