Friso says he cannot suffer priests or foreign princes, but I say that he can suffer no one but himself. He will, therefore, not tolerate that the burg Stavia is restored. He will, therefore, not reinstate the practice of having a mother. Today Friso is your counselor, but tomorrow he wants to be your king, in order to rule over you all!’

The first named themselves ‘mother's sons’, and the second named themselves ‘dad's sons’.(3) The mother's sons, however, were ignored, because, since many ships were built, there was prosperity for shipbuilders, smiths, sail makers, rope makers, and for all other craftsmen. Moreover, the sea warriors brought various treasures with them that pleased the women, the maidens and the girls, which pleased all their relatives, all their friends and allies.
