 Leiden - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Leiden's medieval name was Leithon, and it was governed until 1420 by burgraves, the representatives of the courts of Holland.
Leiden is also known as one of the places where some of the Pilgrims (as well as some of the first settlers of New Amsterdam) [1] [2] lived for a time in the early 17th century before their departure to the New World [3].
The chief of Leiden's numerous churches are the Hooglandsche Kerk (or the church of St Pancras, built in the 15th century and containing a monument to Pieter Adriaanszoon van der Werff) and the Pieterskerk (church of St Peter (1315) with monuments to Scaliger, Boerhaave and other famous scholars.
