Jacques du Broeucq
Du Broeucq rebuilt the castle of Binche south of Brussels for Queen Mary of Hungary, governess of the Spanish Netherlands, in 1545-49; Binche, the center of Mary's patronage, was intended to rival Fontainebleau; it was demolished by the soldiers of Henry II of France in 1554.
One of his most famous apprentice was Jean Boulogne, better known as Giovanni Bologne or Giambologna.
