FOR ENGLISH SUBTITLES CLICK ON COGWHEEL ICON. First episode in a documentary series about the nineteenth century in the Netherlands. This episode focuses on Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, who was installed by his brother Napoleon to rule over the Netherlands as a puppet state of the French Empire. Contrary to expectations, Louis Napoleon took his job as king very seriously, and started fostering a Dutch national sense of identity. Louis Napoleon undertook many lasting reforms and became popular with the Dutch, until he was forced to resign by his brother 4 years into his reign. The Napoleonic roots of the Dutch nation state have subsequently been downplayed in the country’s mythology.
