t'Kint de Roodenbeke is a noble family from Belgium. They are the current owners of the Ooidonk Castle in the city of Deinze, East Flanders.


At first the families of t'Kint and de Roodenbeke were separate noble families, both from the Brussels region and predominantly active in the textile industry of the eighteenth century.

The de Roodenbeke family was one of the Seven Noble Houses of Brussels, forming the patriction class of that city to whom special privileges in the government were granted until the end of the Ancien Régime. While not one of the original seven families, t'Kint was granted membership through the female lineage of de Roodenbeke marrying into the t'Kint family.

The first one carrying the combined name of t'Kint de Roodenbeke was Corneille, born in 1720 in Brussels. Today both names still exist separately, as well as combined.
