The Keizerstraat (Emperor Street) has something solemn in its name, and that was also the case in Rockox’s day. The street was then one of the residential areas just outside Antwerp’s city centre. The oldest mentions of this street date from the end of the 13th century. However, it is not clear whether the street would have been named after an emperor ruling at that time. And how the street looked before 1379 – the year in which a big fire destroyed all the houses – we don’t know. What we do know is that the street was a lively place, especially in the 16th and 17th centuries.
