Family and DescendantsEdit

He was born as the only son of John I of Cottereau, Baron of Jauche and Margueritte, Lady of Assche.[1] He married in 1556 a second time to the lady in waiting of Mary of Hungria: Catherine de Brandenbourg, Lady of Steenockerzeel. He was buried in the family mausoleum of the church of Asse[2][3] with his spouse.[4]
