The border between the Netherlands and Belgium
The 1831 war between the Netherlands and Belgium
Hilvarenbeek - In the aftermath of the French era, the Netherlands and Belgium were merged into one Kingdom in 1815. After the fall of the Grande Armée of Napoleon, the 'United' Kingdom of the Netherlands had to form a northern buffer state at the French northern border. The merger did not go well for long. In 1830, the Belgians revolted and the Netherlands invaded Belgium a year later. Apart from football, language, food, beer and other differences, it was the only real war between the two countries.
