Sikke Sjaardema (- 1260), was the eighth potestaat of
Friesland, a province of the Netherlands. The potestaat was the elected provincial ruler.
Sikko, Sikke or Sicka Syarda came from Ylst or
IJlst, (Elostoe in Latin), and was elected to Potestaat by the men of Friesland in 1237.
William II of Hollandoffered Sicko regional rule on the Friesian lands. This offer can be read in the reference [PDFlink| [http://126.96.36.199:8020/tmp/midf/p1785f.pdf The letter of Sicko to Count Willem II] |11.9 KB ]
Around the year 1250 Sikke Sjaardema made IJlst the province's capital where municipal laws were judged.
