Abstract: In September 1686 Brussels was the scenery of triumphal celebrations organised by Prince Eugene Alexander of Thurn and Taxis (1652-1714) and the Spanish Habsburg governor Francisco Antonio de Agurta, marquis of Castanaga (1640 - 1702). After being 150 years in possession of the Ottomans, Buda, the Hungarian capital, was conquered by the Habsburg Austrian emperor, Leopold I (1640 – 1705). This highly symbolic victory at Buda on the Turks was celebrated throughout the Habsburg empire and beyond. The Dutch printer and artist Romeyn de Hooghe (1645 - 1708) covered the celebrations in Brussels in a set of engravings. These printed engravings tell a unique story how the Brussels public sphere experienced and celebrated the conquest of Buda by the Habsburgs with a distinct portrayal of the Ottomans. The textual and iconographic analysis of these prints and engravings with the different stages of the celebrations forms the base of the following research.
