During the Reformation, the town of Oudenaarde (now in Belgium) was Protestant and sided with Ghent against Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor. Charles' son Alexander Farnese subsequently laid siege to a number of Flemish towns, including Oudenaarde which was taken by the Counter-Reformation in 1582, as shown here.
