:lol:
Next you'll want the whole mod done in ancient Diets or something..
The words are exactly the same. If above versions are correct, the lyrics did not change over time.

You gotta seperate the older written language with the spoken one, seeing how none of us lived back then you can't really know for sure but the spoken language sounded quite much alike their modern equivalents. That's the thing about pre-standardized language, back then you pretty much wrote it as it sounded (Shakespare for instance once spelled his own name differently 5 times on the same written page  :mrgreen:)


Though I don't speak Dutch, Swedish sure did look alot nicer and more poetic in those days.

Well the words are the same, the may have been written differently since there was no spell check as we have here. Also the interpretation of the words may have changed but the song still is about the Prince and the revolt.

The Dutch anthem is also the oldest anthem of the world :wink:
