When Dutch East India Company Invade Indonesia
When it ended
when the first trading post was established
when the bankrupt company was dissolved, and its possessions nationalised as the Dutch East Indies.
Dutch expedition lost half its crew, killed a Javanese prince and lost a ship but returned to the Dutch Republic with a load of spices, the profit from which encouraged other expeditions.
the first permanent Dutch trading post in Indonesia was established in Banten (town), northwest Java and in 1611, another was established at Jayakarta (later renamed 'Batavia' and then 'Jakarta').
a second British East India Company voyage to Maluku, and subsequent establishments of trading posts between 1611 and 1617 across the archipelago began Anglo-Dutch competition for access to spices as the Dutch monopolistic ambitions were threatened.
it was founded on March, 20, 1602
