Notable people[edit]

Here is a list of notable Turks in the Netherlands who still do not have an article in English. *Note all these people have an article in either the Turkish or the Dutch wiki's- and in some cases both.

Dutch Turks[edit]

I came here from Dutch Turks and expected to find a page of Turkish citizens of Dutch ancestry or origin. Is there nothing noteworthy about them? Bataaf van Oranje (talk) 13:11, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes there is, the Dutch have had a prominent trading history in Turkey since the 16th century, mostly concentrated in Istanbul and Izmir. With around 20.000 nationals living in Turkey they are also one of the main western populations in Turkey, and I think after Germans and British they have bought the most (summer) residences there, around Alanya and Bodrum. I wrote a short article on the Dutch Wiki: nl:Nederlandse Turken. The Ottoman Empire was the first nation to recognize the independence of the Dutch republic. The French, Italians and others advised against it, saying the Netherlands was "nothing more than a group of outlaw traders without a ruler". The Turks thought otherwise. Dutch traders and officials collected eastern manuscripts and sent them to Leiden University, which became the center of Eastern learning in Europe because of this. There are many things to tell about the Dutch in Turkey. You can find some information about the historical ties buried in pages such as Protestantism and Islam. Most information on this topic is still locked inside scientific papers unfortunately. NeoRetro (talk) 19:38, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
