Hi, You can check this site for a good description of Holland : http://www.minbuza.nl/history/en/home Some excerpts: " 1588 ______ The Republic of the United Provinces A huge Spanish fleet - the Armada - is sunk in the waters round the British Isles. Maurice, son of the assassinated William of Orange, forces the Spanish onto the defensive and captures a series of towns from them. In the Republic of the United Provinces, a unique political system is created, controlled by the leading figure of the day, Grand Pensionary Johan van Oldenbarnevelt. Read more The Golden Age The Golden Age is the key period in Dutch history. The newly-formed North Sea mini-state, at once old-fashioned and hyper-modern, experiences a period of unprecedented economic, cultural and scientific development. The religious freedom of the Republic attracts many immigrants fleeing religious persecution elsewhere in Europe. Amsterdam becomes a magnet for writers and scholars unable to publish in their own countries. Also check : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holland Regards
