Additional info

After the French had left the area of the Netherlands a Triumvirate was formed by three statesmen Gijsbert Karel Van Hogendorp, Frans Adam van der Duyn van Maasdam and Leopold van Limburg Stirum. They invited the almost forgotten Prince William VI of Orange to The Hague to prevent anarchy or a possible annexation of the Netherlands by Prussia or England. William accepted their invitation and was brought to the Netherlands by an English fregat, where he set foot to the coast of Scheveningen on November 30, 1813.
