1712 · End of the Elzevir Dynasty

Age 8

Louis Elzevirs, along with his descendants, helped create a popular and thriving book dynasty during the Dutch Golden Age. The House of Elzevir took advantage of the tolerant climate and high literacy rates to publish a wide variety of books. Many classical Latin texts were reproduced in affordable, pocket-sized forms that found wide audiences. Unfortunately, the Elzevir Dynasty died out in 1712 as they were overtaken by international competition.
1713 · Peace of Utrecht

Age 9

The Peace of Utrecht was a series of treaties signed between various nations that helped end the War of Spanish Succession. The conflict had involved the Dutch Republic, Portugal, Savoy, France, Great Britain, and Spain. The primary compromise contained in the treaties revolved around not allowing France and Spain to merge, which would help maintain the balance of power in Europe.
