Another depiction of the siege of Naerden

Belagerung und Ubergabe der Stadt Naerden, sampt der Fransozen Auszug den 12 sept anno 1673. Made around 1680 by Luyken, Jan (1649-1712)
Quite interesting scene on the right with presumably the besieged townspeople capitulating.

Nope, it's the re-capture of the town of Naarden by William III and the retreat of the French.

The capture in german is:
'Siege and surrender of the town of Naarden on 12th sept. 1673, including the French leaving town'

The french leaving town is probably symbolised by the priest on the donkey.
