Anglo-Dutch War, (1795-1810)-During the French Revolutionary Wars, the Netherlands became a satellite under the control of France. During the Revolutionary era, Holland was called the Batavian Republic, and in the Napoleonic era, it became the Kingdom of Holland, with Napoleon's brother, Louis Bonaparte, as king. As France and Britain were enemies in this time period, Netherlands/Batavia/Holland was also at war with Britain. Some historians break this into two wars, represnting the Batavian era and the Kingdom of Louis Bonaparte as a separate era and a separate war.
