Additional remarks
Additional remarks The Clerc wrote a chronicle in Dutch dedicated to count of Holland Willem VI (who ruled 1404-1417). He has been identified with a number of people, but the three that are considered most likely are Laurens van Overvest, Willem Eggert and Dirc Potter. Verbeij-Schillings favours Overvest, Timpener argues Dirc Potter fits the profile best.
