Sibet Attena von Esens (+1473), Earl of Harlingerland

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1473 of Sibet Attena von Esens, who first united Harlingerland under his rule during the mid-fifteenth century.

The picture is of his funerary monument, which was erected by his eldest son and heir, Hero Oomkens the Younger von Esens, in St Magnus Church, Esens.
