The Batavian Republic

The Batavian Republic

(p.505) Chapter XXI The Batavian Republic
The Age of the Democratic Revolution

R. R. Palmer

Princeton University Press

This chapter details the Dutch Revolution of 1794–1795, which resulted in the Batavian Republic, the first and the most important of the “satellite” or “sister” republics created under French auspices. The Batavian Republic was important not only in itself but more broadly. It was hoped, by enemies of Great Britain, that the alliance of the French and Batavian Republics, controlling the whole coast without interruption from the Frisian Islands to the Pyrenees, and using the extensive shipping, banking, and other resources of the two together, would form an invincible combination against British trade and sea power. And when Italian, Swiss, German, or Irish revolutionaries wished to explain to the French what they wanted in the following years, they often named the Batavian Republic as their model.
