    Age 18

    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.

    Age 23

    "In order to shorten the sea route into Amsterdam, King William I had authorized the creation of the ""Great North Holland Canal"". This helped resolve issues (like shoals and shallows) that prevented many ships from reaching the city's harbor. Unfortunately, the canal quickly encountered issues: it was unable to handle the increasing number of ships, and it froze during the winter season."
