Netherland has a very intersting history because it was linked with two other country.History of netherland is connected with two other country Belgium and Netherland, in past we called these are 'Low Countries', until the 16th century, when the present-day Netherlands' boundaries were roughly drawn. Philip II of Spain sent the cruel Inquisition to enforce Catholicism, and war broke out in 1568. The revolt of the Netherlands was led by Prince William of Orange, nicknamed William the Silent for his refusal to enter into religious arguments.Amsterdam pranced onto the European stage in Holland's most glorified period, the Golden Age after which the British began dominating the world's seas. Meanwhile Amsterdam's bourgeoisie indulged in fine, gabled canal houses and paintings of themselves and the remains of last night's dinner. This in turn stimulated the arts and brought renown to painters such as Rembrandt. The Netherlands was able to stay neutral through WWI but couldn't exercise the same privilege in WWII. The Netherlands is a staunch supporter of the European Union; it has adopted the euro, and further integration is taken for granted by most Dutch people. The Antilles, off the coast of Venezuela, are still a colony, but are largely self-ruled.
