Paul writes "The story of Pier Gerolfs Donia, or Grutte (The Great) Pier is not that well-known outside of Holland. Luckily for you, I’ve been on Wikipedia again. His life story is, for the most part, riddled with exaggerations and unreliable sources, but what is known is that he was a peasant in the Dutch province of Frisia (modern day Friesland) around the turn of the 16th century and he was involved in a rebellion against the Saxons. Central to the legend of Grutte Pier is the theme of superhuman size and strength. Triangle Studios set out to separate history from myth and give us an accurate as possible portrayal of those events in Cross of the Dutchman."
