Its lords of Brederode were autonomous: in the 16th century they still claimed they only had to answer to God. 16 When the counts did manage to get the autonomous lords to submit to them, they often alienated recently acquired areas to relatives. At the beginning of the 15th century, the counts granted the areas of Arkel, Gooiland, Half-Asperen, Voorne, and Blois as a dowry. 17 But even though these areas were again alienated, autonomous lordships did not reappear. Alienated areas remained fiefs of the counts of Holland, preventing their lords from gaining the autonomy their predecessors had enjoyed.

This was no mere favour, but a duty: according to feudal law, vassals had to assist their lord with auxilium et consilium, by word and deed. 45 The council was open to others in the count’s vicinity as well: family members, those responsible for personal care, and even visiting clerics and citizens. Not only was the composition of the group of advisors subject to change, they did not meet regularly, nor at a fixed location. The council existed wherever the itinerant count resided! 47 From that time, the council was dominated by the high nobility, clerks, and local government officials, such as bailiffs and stewards.

Although this was not their main incentive – they were simply trying to survive in the face of external threats to their rule – in the 14th century, ideas about a strong state surfaced at the court of the counts of Holland. One of its advocates was the lawyer Philip of Leiden. He argued against the alienation of public power in his Tractatus de cura reipublicae et sorte principantes (About the care of the state and the domain of the ruler), written around 1355. 13 Philip opposed autonomous lordships because they damaged the commonwealth: the counts of Holland should strive for territorial autonomy.
