Summary

Between 1600 and 1800, in terms of quantitative criteria, the Netherlands was deemed to be the fifth-largest Atlantic power after England, Spain, Portugal and France. The Dutch Republic played an important role in a number of events in the Atlantic region that outweighed the country’s modest presence in the region. Moreover, there were a number of elements to Dutch expansion that were missing from the Atlantic history of the other European powers.
