What Flemish town is famous for a victory of the Duke of Marlborough over the French, for its tapestries that can be recognized by the mark of a pair of specs and for being the place where a famous Emperor had an affair with the daughter of a local tapestry-weaver, which resulted in the bastard child becoming Governor of the Netherlands?
