This monument stands in tribute to Hendrik Van Brederode, a 16th century nobleman who along with many Dutch nobles of the then Spanish Netherlands opposed the Spanish rule and religious policies there. Other than that, I can’t find any other outstanding notability.

The monument depicts Van Brederode standing and looking up to his right. He has a sword attached to his belt on his right, which his right hand rests on the hilt of the sword.

The statue of Lodewijk van Bodegem can be found in Jardin de Petit Sablon amongst many other monuments to notable personalities of 15th and 16th century Netherlanders. The monument is not a must-see per se, but the collection of sculptures to notable personalities and the park makes it worthwhile though.

There are 48 statues within Jardin du Petite Sablon including ten notable humanists & distinguished Belgians from the 16th-century. There is a garden monument map at the southern entrance if helpful. They have been placed in a semi-circle around (#1) the fountain monument to the Counts Egmont and Hornes and include the following (#2-11) statues from right to left:

2) William of Orange-Nassau (1533-1584)
3) Louis Van Bodeghem (1470-1540)
4) Henri de Brederode (1531-1568)
5) Corneille De Vriendt (1518-1573)
6) Rombaud Dodoens (1518-1585)
7) Gerard Mercator (1512-1594)
8) Jean de Locquenghien (1514-1574)
9) Bernard Van Orley (1495-1542)
10) Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598)
11) Philippe de Marnix de Sainte-Aldegonde (1538-98)

Statue (4) is that of Henri de Brederode, a 16th century nobleman known for resisting Spanish Inquisition. The statue is the work of Belgian sculptor, Antoine-Joseph De Rasbourgh and depicts Brederode in a nobleman's attire, grasping a dagger in his right hand while his left rests on his sword.

It is a good statue that fits in nicely amongst its peers, worth a few minutes to view while enjoying the full collection. Unfortunately, there is no specific information about the Brederode so a bit of research beforehand or afterwards will help understand who this figure was in Belgian history.
