Theodoor Galle (1571-1633) was the son of the Antwerp engraver, publisher and friend of Ortelius, Filips Galle, from whom he learned the art of engraving. He spent some time in Italy before settling permanently in Antwerp where he set up as an engraver and print-seller. His marriage to Catharina, second daughter of Jan Moretus and Martina Plantijn, in 1598 led to a close collaboration with the Plantijn printing house, publishers of the Ortelius atlas. Through these family ties, he gained access to the plate-stock of the Officina Plantiniana.
