Abstract: This contribution underlines the importance of peace negotiations by two petty noblemen during the Dutch Revolt. The brothers-in-law Selles and Tisnacq shared high ranking positions in the Royal Archers Guard at the Spanish Court. Through their descent, titles and court functions, they were seen as crucial mediators during the Dutch Revolt, even if their negotiations did not always result into success. Nonetheless this article conveys that their embassies from Spain to the Netherlands, in 1578-1579 and 1592-1593, formed missing links between rather well-known bilateral diplomatic peace conferences between Philip II and his upraising Dutch vassals.
