Abstract

This contribution underlines the importance of news on the Dutch Revolt for the Medici family.
The Medici, (grand)dukes of Tuscany, received various newsreports on the deteriorating
situation in the Netherlands on a weekly basis. In recent literature on early modern
communication, two different types of news writers and news have been discerned.
This article shows that these categorizations blur our understanding of early modern
information networks.
