After the victory of the Geuzen, the Netherlands became a republic, in which the House of Orange played an important role. Under the influence of the French enlightenment, a movement arose in the Netherlands, the Patriots. They wanted more freedom and were much critical of stadtholder Willem V. The wife of the stadtholder, Wilhelmina van Prussia, was arrested in 1787 in Goejanverwellesluis by Patriots. She was so angry about this that she called on her brother, the king of Prussia, to defeat the Patriots. He sent the Duke of Brunswick for this.
He conquered several cities in the Netherlands. Amsterdam was the last stronghold of the Patriots. Cannons were placed at Halfweg, as an advanced defensive bulwark against the Prussians. It was to no avail, the Patriots had to flee through the IJsteeg.”
