Bijzonderheid The riots ocurred in January 1696 when the city’s undertakers, concerned by funeral reforms including steep taxes to fund the war with France, took to the streets and sacked a number of official buildings. They were almost immediately put down by troops who were rushed to the city by the authorities.
