French language was both the language of the salons, an etiquette necessary for the bourgeoisie but similarly seen as a foreign language, a dilution of the true Flemish identity.
The resistance was not easy, and it was persistent. To your right is the living monument "The Aula of the university" that speaks of a great Flemish Tale. A moment where the Flemish language won, when the Flemish people prevailed; it was official: the university of Gent would teach in Dutch! A moment of pride and victory. On the first day of teaching in Dutch, the pro- French cut off all the lights symbolizing the start of a dark age over the university of Ghent.
Very dramatic and Shakespeare you might say.
Where you are staying today is to keep that legend alive, the quest for identity.
