King William I
After Emperor Napoleon was defeated in 1813 and the French pulled out of the Netherlands, the last Prince of Orange returned to the country. Frederik Willem van Oranje-Nassau, son of the regent William V, lived for years in exile in England.
The moment he set foot on the Dutch sea shore, he travelled to Amsterdam and was proclaimed Sovereign Prince at the Palace. Two years later, he was inaugurated in Brussels as William I, King of the Netherlands.
