Historique: Jean de Hornes
Born at Weert in 1458 by Jacques 1st Count of Hornes and Jeanne, Countess of Meurs. He was canon of Saint-Lambert in 1474 and provost of the collegiate church Saint-Denis and archdeacon of Hainaut in 1480. He was elected prince-bishop of Liège by the chapter on November 7, 1483. Pope Innocent VIII confirms his election on November 17 1484 and was consecrated to Maastricht on September 11, 1485. The civil war devastated the principality and especially the county of Looz for 7 years from 1485 to 1492. The family of Marck, under the protection of King Charles VIII of France, made himself master of Liège and forced the prince-bishop to leave his capital for Maastricht. The peace of Donchéry was signed on 5 May 1492 between Jean de Hornes and the de la Marck. On July 25, 1492, the Prince-Bishop solemnly entered Liege. On May 23rd, 1493, by the treaty of Senlis, France and the Netherlands recognized the neutrality of the principality of Liège. Jean de Hornes died in Maastricht of an outburst of anger on December 18, 1505. During the period of occupation of Liège, Everard de la Marck hits currency between 1488 and 1489.
