THE REMBRANDT VAN RIJN ABRIDGED BIOGRAPHY
THE EARLIEST DAYS, CHAPTER I

"...a respectable, middle-class family." Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was born in Leyden, about 50 kilometres from Amsterdam, on the 15th of July 1606. Rembrandt was the eighth of nine children. Some critics have described Rembrandt’s traditionally large family as struggling; however, there is no documented evidence that suggests that the van Rijn family was in anyway impoverished. Rather, it is thought that the family was quite comfortable. Their reputation was that of a respectable, middle-class family.
    Rembrandt’s father was a successful miller. His surname, van Rijn, suggests that his family had been established for generations in the same region near the Rhine River. In fact, the family’s mill, which was on the Velst, a branch of the Rhine, was called the Rhine Mill.
    Rembrandt’s mother was Neeltgen (also called Cornelia) Willemsdochter van Zuytbrouck. She was the daughter of a prosperous baker. The family was close as ws the norm of the day. Rembrandt's grandfather on his mother's side was also the godfather of Rembrandt’s brother, Willem.
