In the true Dutch mercantile spirit of trade and exchange, after having History of the Netherlands featured on History Daily, today we have handed over the wheel to Lindsay Graham to steer the ship for this episode.
History Daily runs a tight ship, each episode being around 20 minutes long meaning they’re easy to digest while you are cycling from a windmill to the local clog factory, gazing at rolling clumps of beautiful sphagnum and nibbling away on some cheese. In fact they’re so easily digestible that we’ve ordered two rounds which we think generally fit the vibe of History of the Netherlands.
The first episode you will hear is the story of the Antwerp Diamond Heist which happened on the 16th of February, 2003. This is an incredible yarn, fantastically told, that we think you will love. The second episode will be harkening way, way back to March 24, 1603; a date, which, for those following our podcast’s chronology, is actually still far, far into the future. This story is about the death of the English queen Elizabeth I. She will become an incredibly important figure in the shaping of the History of the Netherlands during its most tumultuous period, the late 16th century, even being formally offered sovereignty over the United Provinces after the assassination of William the Silent. Errr..spoiler alert..?
