Vrijdagsmarkt

The Friday Market was also the place where the English king Edward The Third was exclaimed as the King of France during the War France-England (14th century). The fact that Ghent was governed by the French at that time didn't make the town very popular in France. The choice was obviously a pure economic one, since the linnen-production in Ghent was depending on England for the supply of wool.
