The de Roodenbeke family was one of the Seven Noble Houses of Brussels, forming the patrician 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.
Some members were ennobled in the eighteenth century.
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.
