Slide 3 - Tekstslide

Problems in the Netherlands
During the 18th century the Dutch Republic began to decline:

  • The profits of the WIC and VOC went down.
  • Expensive wars against England. 
  • Dissatisfied with stadtholder William V of Orange, who ruled like an absolute king. 

People who protested against William V called themselves Patriots and formed an army!

Remember this?

Slide 4 - Tekstslide

Problems in the Netherlands
William V had powerfull friends and family. The King of Prussia helped William to get rid of the Patriots

Most Patriots fled to France, where the French Revolution was happening. 

The Patriots joined the French Army to conquer the Dutch Republic.

Upon arrival William fled to England and the Patriots were in charge!!
This event is called the Batavian Revolution!
2.3 + 2.4

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

Problems in the Netherlands
Remember the radicals and moderates  from the French revolution?
Same thing happened in the Batavian Republic!

Radical Patriots wanted a central government in The Hague.
The moderate patriots were already happy enough by getting rid of William. 

In the meantime Napoleon became ruler of France. He did not like the unrest in the Batavian Republic so he made his brother Louis Napoleon king of Holland!           (yeah, just like that!)

Slide 7 - Tekstslide

Napoleon in the Netherlands
Napoleon was not impressed by his brother and made the Netherlands officially a part of France in 1810. 

Napoleon loved his military operations. But his decision to invade Russia was not a smart move. For the first time in many years Napoleon had lost a war. 

Other European rulers saw this as a oppurtunity to get rid of Napoleon. They put their armies together and defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
