    The United Provinces of the Netherlands, or United Provinces, commonly referred to in historiography as the Dutch Republic, was a federal republic which existed from 1581 to 1795.

The provinces formed a mutual alliance against Spain in 1579 and declared their independence in 1581. A

  5. Financial history of the Dutch Republic - Wikipedia

    The financial history of the Dutch Republic involves the interrelated development of financial institutions in the Dutch Republic.

    The re­pub­lic was also known as the Re­pub­lic of the Seven United Netherlands (Dutch: Re­pu­bliek der Zeven Ver­e­nig­de Nederlanden), Re­pub­lic of the United Netherlands, Re­pub­lic of the Seven United Provinces (Re­pu­bliek der Zeven Ver­e­nig­de Provinciën), the United Provinces (Ver­e­nig­de Provinciën), Seven Provinces (Zeven Provinciën), Fed­er­ated Dutch Provinces (Latin: Foe­de­ra­tae Bel­gii Provinciae), or the Dutch Federation (Bel­gi­ca Foederata). Com­mon names in Dutch for the Re­pub­lic in of­fi­cial cor­re­spon­dence were: 1. De Republiek ("the Republic") 2. Republiek der Verenigde Nederlanden ("Republic of the United Netherlands") 3.

    Until the 16th cen­tury, the Low Coun­tries – cor­re­spond­ing roughly to the pre­sent-day Nether­lands, Bel­gium, and Lux­em­bourg – con­sisted of a num­ber of duchies, coun­ties, and prince-bish­oprics, al­most all of which were under the su­premacy of the Holy Roman Em­pire, with the ex­cep­tion of the county of Flan­ders, which was under the King­dom of France. Most of the Low Coun­tries had come under the rule of the House of Bur­gundy and sub­se­quently the House of Hab­s­burg. In 1549 Holy Roman Em­peror Charles V is­sued the Prag­matic Sanc­tion, which fur­ther uni­fied the Sev­en­teen Provinces under his rule. Charles was suc­ceeded by his son, King Philip II of Spain. In 1568 the Nether­lands, led by William I of Or­ange, re­volted against Philip II be­cause of high taxes, per­se­cu­tion of Protes­tants by the gov­ern­ment, and Philip's ef­forts to mod­ern­ize and cen­tral­ize the de­volved-me­dieval gov­ern­ment struc­tures of the provinces. This was the start of the Eigh...

    Dur­ing the Dutch Golden Age in the late 16th and 17th cen­turies, the Dutch Re­pub­lic dom­i­nated world trade, con­quer­ing a vast colo­nial em­pire and op­er­at­ing the largest fleet of mer­chant­men of any na­tion. The County of Hol­landwas the wealth­i­est and most ur­ban­ized re­gion in the world. The free trade spirit of the time was aug­mented by the de­vel­op­ment of a mod­ern, ef­fec­tive stock mar­ket in the Low Countries. The Nether­lands has the old­est stock ex­change in the world, founded in 1602 by the Dutch East India Com­pany, while Rot­ter­dam has the old­est bourse in the Nether­lands. The Dutch East-In­dia Com­pany ex­change went pub­lic in six dif­fer­ent cities. Later, a court ruled that the com­pany had to re­side legally in a sin­gle city, so Am­s­ter­damis rec­og­nized as the old­est such in­sti­tu­tion based on mod­ern trad­ing prin­ci­ples. While the bank­ing sys­tem evolved in the Low Coun­tries, it was quickly in­cor­po­rated by the well-con­nected Eng­...

    The re­pub­lic was a con­fed­er­a­tion of seven provinces, which had their own gov­ern­ments and were very in­de­pen­dent, and a num­ber of so-called Gen­er­al­ity Lands. The lat­ter were gov­erned di­rectly by the States Gen­eral (Staten-Gen­er­aal in Dutch), the fed­eral gov­ern­ment. The States Gen­eral were seated in The Hagueand con­sisted of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of each of the seven provinces. The provinces of the re­pub­lic were, in of­fi­cial feu­dal order: 1. The Duchy of Guelders (Gelderlandin Dutch) 2. The County of Holland 3. The County of Zeeland 4. The Lordship of Utrecht (formerly the Episcopal principality of Utrecht) 5. The Lordship of Overijssel 6. The Lordship of Frisia 7. The Lordship of Groningen and Ommelanden. In fact, there was an eighth province, the County of Dren­the, but this area was so poor it was ex­empt from pay­ing fed­eral taxes and as a con­se­quence was de­nied rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the States Gen­eral. Each province was gov­erned by the Provin­cia...

    In the Union of Utrecht of 20 Jan­u­ary 1579, Hol­land and Zee­land were granted the right to ac­cept only one re­li­gion (in prac­tice, Calvin­ism). Every other province had the free­dom to reg­u­late the re­li­gious ques­tion as it wished, al­though the Union stated every per­son should be free in the choice of per­sonal re­li­gion and that no per­son should be pros­e­cuted based on re­li­gious choice. William of Or­ange had been a strong sup­porter of pub­lic and per­sonal free­dom of re­li­gion and hoped to unite Protes­tants and Catholics in the new union, and, for him, the Union was a de­feat. In prac­tice, Catholic ser­vices in all provinces were quickly for­bid­den, and the Dutch Re­formed Churchbe­came the "pub­lic" or "priv­i­leged" church in the Republic. Dur­ing the Re­pub­lic, any per­son who wished to hold pub­lic of­fice had to con­form to the Re­formed Church and take an oath to this ef­fect. The ex­tent to which dif­fer­ent re­li­gions or de­nom­i­na­tions were per­...
