Emden and the Dutch Revolt

Andrew Pettegree

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the participation of Dutch towns in the Dutch Revolt of 1572. The revolt caused major economic problems, particularly with the fishing trade, and thousands of people were left with no work and municipal charity was strained to the limit. This chapter suggests that if the Dutch revolt is to be seen as a military victory for the rebel forces and a spontaneous uprising, it should be noted that the Protestant exiles made significant contributions to this victory.
