a Dutch statesman and poet, mostly known for his work on scientific instruments (sometimes in conjunction with his younger brother Christiaan Huygens). But, he was also a chronicler of his times, revealing the importance of gossip. Besides he was an amateur draughtsman of landscapes. When William III of England became stadtholder in 1672 Constantijn Jr. had been appointed as his secretary. Constantijn participated in the campaigns against the French, in the Glorious Revolution, but did not attend the crowning.
