Neyt coa

The Neyt family is an old and noble Brunanter family of German-Brabanter and Libertan origin.


The family's ancestors are said to have come from Ney, a village in the Rheinland area of Germany or from present-day Belgium. The family Neyt (or Neyes) then moved to Libertas in the 12th century and were related to famous writer Decius Neyes. In Brunant the first Neyt family members to come were Gerhardus Neyt (1384-1450) and his half-brother, Adriaan Neyt (1387-1446). Gerhard would sit at the Convention of Grijzestad and sign the Declaration of Independence. Adriaan was an artist who skethced the members of the convention. The descendants of Gerhard would adopt the name "van Neyt" to distinguish themselves from their "lesser" relatives. Both branches of the family would later become part of high society.

Notable membersEdit

Neyt familyEdit

The Neyt family of Brunant is descended from Adriaan Neyt (1387-1446), a painter of high repute in his lifetime. His children and grandchildren were mainly involved in the arts and trades; his son Adriaan Alexander was a stone-mason and descendant Gerardus Neyt was a well known writer and poet. Other descendants included painters Neyt the Elder and Neyt the younger. Land given to Johan Alexander Neyt by Karl Van Draak (for his support in the Brunanter Civil War) made the family richer, but his lavish spending resulted in his children living in relative poverty. Neyt the Younger's descendants married into royalty, and his great-grandson (Hendrik) would become President of Brunant in 1838-41. Hendrik's son married into Libertan royalty. Robert's son Sebastien inherited the family lands and fortune, but having no sons that all passed on to his daughter Clementine and her watchmaking husband. In order to maintain the fortune in the family Clementine had her daughter marry Augustus Neyt, a distant but wealthy Libertan relation. A brother of Philip Neyt (12), Robert, moved to Libertas. He had a son called Dimitrius. Dimitrius became the 9th King of Libertas in 1821. He had the title "Duke of Zuidpunt". He obtained it from his father Robert who obtained it from his father Johannes Philip Neyt (11). He obtained the title from Martha Velthoven (10) who obtained the title from her father and her grandfather who was a Libertan nobility.
