Historical background



William I (24/08/1772-12/12/1843) is the son of William V of Nassau, Prince of Orange, Stadtholder of the Netherlands (1751-1795). He fought against Napoleon in the Allied forces and the Treaty of Vienna in 1815 gave him the kingdom of the Netherlands and the former Austrian Netherlands. Conservative, he laid the Dutch in 1819 for official acts. An insurrection broke out in 1830 in Brussels and William I was about to drown in the blood when the Belgian independence was proclaimed on October 4, 1830. William was forced to abdicate in 1840 and leave the throne to his son, William II (1792-1849). He died in exile in Berlin in 1843.
