1667-The Chatham Surprise & Peace Treaty of Breda

The Story

Chatham 1667

Every fight should have a winner and a loser, even when one decides for a draw. You could see with the last fight between with Badr Hari vs Rico Verhoeven. First being mean and then sign off peace. Like with the Peace Treatment of Breda in 1667. Johan de Witt of the Dutch Republic did not find himself in a good position during those negotiations with the English. He then secretely had Michiel de Ruyter and his bro Cornelis set sail to Chatham near London where they competely destroyed the English fleet. They took the big English vessel “The Royal Charles” as a souvenir back home. After that it was only a matter of days before the treaty was signed in Dutch favor. Even in a draw you can be called a winner!

The Peace Treaty of Breda

The small city of Breda was overflooded with high officials from England and Holland.  For weeks in this summer the city celebrated being the center of the world! The Treaty was signed and celebrated in the Townhall of the city of Breda, also called the Pearl of the South. New Amsterdam was lost anyway but could be traded with Bandau-island Pulau Run & Surinam. In those days the world was still built from Western Europe. So was the cold Dutch language enforced on Surinam as of 1667. What a shock for them! Happily we got some words back like Doekoe, roti, pom, schaafijs and pindakaas. It is remarkable to see

Eternal Peace?

After the Treaty of Breda peace lasted for 5 years between Holland and England. 1672 Came to be the Year of Disaster. Johan and Cornelis de Witt were killed and slaughtered and parts of the country were occcupied by the French and Germans. Dutch prince Willem-III took over and managed to keep the country independent, and even became King of England. But the very first modern Republic was no more. It would take 100 years more (1776) before the second modern republic was started in the USA; with the Dutch republic as role model.
