Abstract

In the Early Modern Period the representation of landowners on the regional water boards of Rijnland and Schieland changed drastically. During the Middle Ages the regional water authorities conferred with a broad and flexible group of representatives, delegated by local landowners, but these were dismissed and replaced by a small, permanent and elitist group of principal landowners. The cities were the driving forces behind the formation of Boards of Principal Landowners. By linking representative institutions in rural contexts to cities, this article contributes to the debate whether or not intensive political participation was an urban phenomenon.
