After two years, from March 1647, Huygens continued his studies at the newly founded College of Orange, in Breda, where his father was a curator: the change occurred because of a duel between his brother Lodewijk and another student.
He then had a stint as a diplomat on a mission with Henry, Duke of Nassau. He took off for Denmark, visited Copenhagen and Helsingør, and hoped to cross the Øresund to visit Descartes in Stockholm. While his father Constantijn had wished his son Christiaan to be a diplomat, it also was not to be.
He attempted to return to France in 1685 but the revocation of the Edict of Nantes precluded this move.
His father died in 1687, and he inherited Hofwijck, which he made his home the following year.
Mersenne wrote to Constantijn on his son's talent for mathematics, and flatteringly compared him to Archimedes (3 January 1647).
At this time Leibniz was working on a calculating machine, and he moved on to London in early 1673 with diplomats from Mainz; but from March 1673 Leibniz was tutored in mathematics by Huygens.
In 1666 he moved to Paris and earned a position at Louis XIV's new French Academy of Sciences.
However, his relationship with the Academy was not always easy, and in 1670 Huygens, seriously ill, chose Francis Vernon to carry out a donation of his papers to the Royal Society in London, should he die.
He liked to play with miniatures of mills and other machines.
His father gave him a liberal education: he studied languages and music, history and geography, mathematics, logic and rhetoric, but also dancing, fencing and horse riding.In October 1646 there is the suspension bridge, and the demonstration that a catenary is not a parabola.
