In 1617, the conflicts between religious and civil authorities in the Dutch Republic escalated. To maintain order, it was proposed that local authorities to be given the opportunity to raise troops. Unfortunately, during the chaos, Grotius was brought to Loevestein Castle to serve his life imprisonment sentence.
