FADEN, William. [Detailed map of the short-lived 'United Kingdom of the Netherlands']
Kingdom of the Netherlands, including the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, with the Post Roads and Stations, likewise the limits as settled by the Treaty of Paris, Nov.r 10th 1815. London: Faden, 1820. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen, as issued, total 805 x 580mm, with marbled slipcase with publisher's label. Slight ink offset from the title.
A map of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands, set up in the Treaty of Paris, signed a few months after Napoleon's final defeat at Waterloo. This unified the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, the Austrian Netherlands, Liège and Luxembourg under the monarchy of the Calvinist William I. Although the king was enlightened and did much to modernise his country, the differences between the Protestant, Dutch-speaking North and the Catholic, French-speaking South were too much, and Belgium declared its independence in 1830.
