The Treaty of Maastricht, signed in 1843 by Belgium and the Netherlands, established the border between the two countries. It resulted in a very complicated frontier in parts that passes through houses and has tiny enclaves[1] depending on where Catholic Belgians and Dutch Protestants were living at the time.

Part of the left bank of the Meuse, near Maastricht, came back to the Netherlands.[2]

This treaty was signed four years after the Treaty of London (1839).
