a Bohemian Hussite nobleman who fought in Saxon, Dutch and Hessian service during the Thirty Years War and came out of retirement to command a Dutch regiment in the Franco-Dutch War. Rabenhaupt went into exile for his religion in 1620, after the failure of the Bohemian Revolt, and entered Saxon service. By 1622 he had followed Ernst von Mansfeld into Dutch service. Taking part in a number of sieges in the Low Countries, he established his reputation in the trench warfare that was part of such sieges. Transferring to Hessian service he became governor of Kalkar in 1641.
