This chapter describes the lineage of the Count Johan Maurits and the events that led up to his journey to Brazil. The beginning of his time in Brazil is also described. Count Johan quickly won over the locals because of his sincerity. The Count expanded the boarders and established several villages. The Count maintained peace and harmony between the various groups that lived in the area. After he left, discord spread throughout the country. The Count moved on to be the governor of Wesel and was appointed lieutenant-general of cavalry.
