Hidden world



8-8e What happened in and around Het Ronde Huis in Nunspeet 

“In 1979 and 1980, the story about Het Ronde Huis was the reason for burglary, stealing of reports 
and the shadowing of researchers, including a psychic. The local population is strict Protestant and 
poor. The travelers who in a hurry, are on the trail that leads along Nunspeet northward direction 
Zwolle often did not like that at all. The drifting sand of the sandy soil, despite the planting of forests 
by the landlords was still annoying. Not many people got off at the station Nunspeet. Before the 
arrival of the railway the area around Nunspeet was a wasteland, where small farmers kept struggling. 
With the contribution of the port of Rotterdam and the German Ruhr, wealthy Dutch elite settled in this 
desert, planting forests and founding estates. One of the cranky landowners is Frank van Vloten. 
The locals are terrified of him. They call him ‘De Zwarte Duivel’ (The Black Devil). When his workers 
are working in the woods, he comes on a pitch-black horse. He is dressed all in black and wearing a 
black sombrero. ‘De Zwarte Duivel’ curses in Spanish and beats his drum to frighten them.”

 “Sometimes his very young 16 year old woman of Chinese Indian origin sits on his horse completely 
naked. By the terrified people of Nunspeet she is called ‘Zwartje’ (Blackie). ‘Zwartje’ comes from the 
Dutch East Indies where she is sold to van Vloten by a Chinese. When ‘De Zwarte Duivel’ is bad- 
tempered, he dumps his naked woman among the workers in the woods. ‘Do whatever the hell it is 
you wanna do with her.’ But the God-fearing workers do not dare. They pity ‘Zwartje’ the small shy 
creature who never says anything. Van Vloten abused his young wife in a mean way in the presence 
of staff and forestry workers. It made his reputation even worse. The staff several times acted by locking 
the boss (van Vloten) in the cellars, and saving his young wife and other girls who were stuck between 
the iron bars in the stairwell. Around 1916, most of the remaining staff resigned.”

“The closed Veluwe peasantry tells among themselves, the wildest rumors of van Vloten. That could be 
a cause of the mysterious stories about Het Ronde Huis and estate of van Vloten. 

But also a man of the world as machinist H. Rothman who in the twenties often was on his steam engine 
visiting Nunspeet, tells eyewitness stories to researcher Montenberg: It happened several times that the 
express train got a red signal in Nunspeet and had to stop, completely unexpected and without a reason. 
A student was curious and took a look. He saw that a woman got off the train, on the wrong side, thus the 
forest side, accompanied by some very young girls who were dressed all in black with veils on their faces. 
They were picked up by a man with a gun, who brought them to the tramcar.” 

“In the report of Montenberg, we read this: it was well known that girls, who involuntarily were traveling to 
brothels, were drugged, scared and dressed in deep mourning with supervisors dressed in mourning 
as well. It was not conspicuous as they were supported or held to the arm. And no one stayed in the 
compartment with such a company. Monteberg’s research recounts how on their Veluwe estates the 
nobility and wealthy industrialists ordered young girls in order to abuse them in their country houses. 
There were wild orgies where dark, occult processes were exercised. ‘De Zwarte Duivel’ was, according 
to the investigations, the most terrible, but he was not the only one. The practices occurred deep into the 
Oranje dynasty where except for Het Ronde Huis the same thing happened at the hunter’s chalet 
‘Áardhuis’ with formerly owner Willem III.”

“The stop Assel was opened in 1876 to be used by King Willem III. It was built simultaneously with the 
longer connection between Apeldoorn and Amersfoort. Trough this stop he easily could take his guests 
to the Aardhuis, a hunter’s chalet that he built in 1861. The same happened under Prince Hendrik with the 
‘Aardhuis’ in the forests of the Crown Estates. But the Castle de Mokerheide at Groesbeek had the 
same bad reputation.”

“In 1917, there is an important meeting, pro German against Dutch interests. Five men on high level 
involved, three neighbors to the south and two Dutch, Prince Hendrik and Frank van Vloten the sex 
maniac. Prince Hendrik was a regular at Het Ronde Huis, and not only Hendrik, but Juliana as well. 
At the lake of Het Ronde Huis was a lot of sex. A forester tells; we were so incredibly poor. When the lord 
or ranger came and there was a woman or a young girl inside, then her husband or farther went in the 
forest. That was normal. I had a sister, she left school, just 12 years old and she had to work at 
Het Ronde Huis. We never saw her again. For researcher Johan M. Montenberg doors opened that 
would remain closed to the average humans. Mainly because his mother was in the highest drinking 
champagne world and had a relationship with Prince Hendrik, which led to her son at the age of twenty 
without qualifications, was provided with certificates and sworn in as broker. The possibility exists that 
J.W. MontenbBerg was a bastard son of Prince Hendrik.”

“Montenberg reported about a lieutenant of cavalry from wealthy family who was on exercise in the 
Veluwe autumn 1921. A friend asks him to go for some experience together and knows something. 

So they come after a midnight ride at Het Ronde Huis in the woods, which he thinks is a sex castle or 
a fancy brothel belonged to a Madame with expensive champagne. Once inside, they see no Madame,
but a gentleman with a gray beard, Frank van Vloten. There is an iron staircase, a kind of stage. In a 
semicircle there are some small rooms without doors. The chambers are decorated in different styles 
and there are young girls of different ages and race in rigid postures. Along the blind back are wide 
sofas with cushions. For the lieutenant and his friend, light is created in a quaintly decorated sitting-room, 
where a dark and blond girl like dolls ly next to each other on a couch under a white silk cloth. It seems 
that they know his taste, because the blonde is for him and he takes her following the example of his friend. 
She is very nice, not older than 14 years, has a pair of long narrow black leather gloves and a pair of very 
high heeled golden dolls like shoes. In connection with the service as an officer all members and 
prospective members day and night could use the girls who were ultimately destined to be used at 
major meetings. These girls between 10 and 16 years had all undergone a very careful treatment, were 
of different races, could hardly walk (Lotus feet) and did not speak. He visits by day the special home 
with it very special railcar twice. The ‘dolls’ are present in the large Hunting Room, during dinner in the 
dining room, on the terrace and upstairs in the rooms.”

“They sit or lie in rigid postures, the Oriental wear only a kind of scarf, others silk dresses and others 
modern dress. They are treated like dolls and sit on the knee or lie on the ground near the ‘gentlemen’. 
The conversations are about politics, hunting and other topics, drinks and meals are good, one does 
not talk about money. Anything is possible with these young girls, you can go up, or go into the woods 
with them, out riding, or on the saddle, just name it. The host, the man with the gray beard, van Vloten 
told the lieutenant that they knew his preference for blond and told him the blonde girl was for a little while 
and the doctor, like he did to others, had removed all metatarsals and two toes so it had become 
the lotus feet.”

“Little, without movement, but not insensible, it caused some cramping, but if it dies off, it is worse. 
She is expensive, had a good upbringing and therefore needs to stay a little longer. That’s all. 
The lieutenant had a long talk with his commander and knew what he had to do: join and participate 
and a lot of support in his career, or ... it was clear to him. It implies that by the ‘club’ Het Ronde Huis 
or whatever you want to call it, from regular visitors to the nightly meetings in the forest, men were invited 
who had a certain future and could choose to become a member, and therefore guilty in exchange for a 
secure protection and that in return for information, or forget everything and be silent without protection.”

“In 1923 Olthoff, broker whom Montenberg was working for was offered a part of the wood for sale in 
Hilversum. Montenberg went for looking and negotiating with the owners. There was a wooden building 
with veranda, seemingly uninhabited. Three men came by car, two of them went inside and the third walked 
with Montenberg on the woodland. On their way back they walked along the rear of the house, where to 
their astonishment, 8-10 young girls were on a deckchair, each with a bucket of sand in which they held 
their little naked pointy feet. They had just been ‘treated’; two toes removed so to get the lotus feet.”

“The next day Olthoff says, you should go directly to Utrecht to doctor A. Schuckink Kool (1873-1956), 
whom you have spoken yesterday. Once there Montenberg is referred directly to the private office and 
the gentleman says to Montenberg that he might have seen something he should not talk about. 
Montenberg promises that he has seen nothing, he just said: I thought it was not occupied. Yes, that’s 
true he said, but this month it will be empty. Montenberg’s curiosity was aroused and he continued his 
research, because the forest concerned was near the estate ‘De Hoorne Boeg’, with all kinds of 
half-truths and untruths stories.”
