Casket with mementoes of Baron C.J. Krayenhoff, anonymous, before 1895
Cornelis Johannes Krayenhoff fought as a cavalry officer at the Battle of Waterloo. He was struck by a bullet and fell from his horse, but fortunately lived to tell the tale. Krayenhoff and his descendants imbued this event with heroism and martyrdom: they kept as family relics the cartridge case crushed by his fall and the bullet that struck him.
