    1756 · Herring Fleet Reduction

    Age 0

    The Dutch fishing industry had already been damaged during the War of Spanish of Succession. During the years of 1756 through 1761, the amount of herring fleets was reduced even more drastically; the primary cause was drastically lowered revenue. Foreign competitors thrived against the Dutch during this time, especially because they were not held to the same Dutch regulations and had easier access to fishing grounds.


    Age 24

    A four year war with England was fought.

    1787 · Prussian Rule

    Age 31

    In 1787, Amsterdam was forced to surrender to the Prussians. The country was under Prussian rule until the French Invaded in 1795.

    Name Meaning
