The history of Dutch Colony and its West India Company.
After the West India Company established(1621) the Dutch Republic tried to conquer portions of Brazil that was the largest sugar-producing region in the world from the Portuguese.
That was happend in 1630. The arrival of the colony's governor Johan Maurits of Nassau-Siegen in 1637 was meant not only to stabilize the situation but also to expand the Dutch territories.
He aimed ' As far as the world extends' and his ambition was clearly understanding through his seven-years stay.
Fortresses,bridges,houses and palaces were built and Mauritsstad which became the new capital took his name.Scientists and artists such as Frans Post recorded the new colony's wonder of nature and documented the native flora, fauna and inhabitants, paid on this way tribute to Johan Maurits.
