The name of the city itself speaks of the origin. The word Amersfoort consists of two parts: Amer (the old name of the river, now the river Em) and foort (ford, in modern Dutch - voorde). The settlement of Amersfoort was first mentioned in the charter of the Holy Roman Emperor Conrad II (1028). However, despite its convenient geographical position (the intersection of water and land roads), for a long time Amersfoort remained an insignificant settlement. It didn't even have its own church.
