Hasselt obtains its city charter from bishop Hendrik van Vianden. 

\mypar % switch to 3rd column

Hendrik van Vianden was pressed by other towns not to agree

convince the Bishop. After supporting the Bishop in a small 
war against the Drents, the charter was released. 

\stopmypar % end paragraph body
