During the Napoleonic Wars, the Netherlands was freed from the French by Prussian and Russian troops. William Frederik declared himself king of the region on March 16, 1815. Tensions rose between the southern and northern regions of the Netherlands. Eventually, Belgium declared themselves independent on October 4, 1830 during the Belgian Revolution (which broke out in August of 1830). William did not accept this change, and launched a invasion that ultimately had to be called off. The Treaty of London was signed in 1839, recognizing Belgian independence by the Dutch in exchange for certain land acquisitions.
