14641524, Apr 7
Admiral of the Netherlands from 1498 to 1517 and bishop of Utrecht from 1517 to 1524. Philip's politics were not very successful; he left much to his councillors and had trouble keeping himself standing in the midst of the faction-struggles in the bishopric. During his rule the Oversticht was largely lost in the Guelders War between the Empire and Guelders. The bishopric maintained only Hasselt, Steenwijk and Oldenzaal.
