Batavian Revolution[edit]

Ok thank you. With the addition of the Batavian Revolution my feeling of this era named rise and fall of the republic is satisfied; and I agree the Batavian Republic was a prelude to monarchy. Arnoutf 08:17, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Short template[edit]

Hi all; I like the template, but I have a question. The list is fairly long and detailed, and does not fit equally well on all page (cf Eighty Years' War). Would there be a possibility to have a 'short form' with only the major era's (ancient time - and not subdivide in Germanic tribes etc), for inclusion on some pages? Arnoutf 18:12, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

I think it would be possible I'll see what I can do.

Another posibility is making a special time template just for a period in time let's say 1500 - 1700. Rex Germanus Tesi samanunga is edele unde scona 20:27, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Perhaps we can do something like this Template:HistNl Republic, where you have detailed info on the era, and only the general era's. Wikilinking the Era's should lead somewhere useful though. Arnoutf 18:05, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

Something like this?

History of the Netherlands

Yeah that looks nice.

Ok put it under Template:HistNl Republic. If desired we can design similar small forms for each ear. Arnoutf 20:47, 1 June 2006 (UTC)





I changed the image to Flag of the Netherlands.svg, from something with an hourglass over it. -68.230.150.72 18:28, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

How about a collapsible template?[edit]

I have been playing a bit with the collapsible navtemplates. I think it may be usefull to design these in a nested way for the Netherlands series, because these smaller templates distort articles to a lesser degree, while still containing all the information. I know the one below is far from finished, but just as a showcase before I start tweaking. Post here what you thinn of this idea, thanks Arnoutf 16:52, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Adding Dutch Empire[edit]

I've added Dutch Empire onto the list referring to the History of the Netherlands, and was going to add the VOC and GWIC, but decided to just stay with what the Dutch Empire for now. Considering the impact the Dutch had in the colonial world in the 17th-20th centuries, I felt that it was absolutely necessary to have a link, If there's a problem with it, though, contact me on my page about it.
