Having a very lazy Sunday, posting a picture from a run earlier this week is as active as I'm going to get today. •
🇳🇱 Hele luie zondag, actiever dan het posten van een foto van een hardlooprondje eerder deze week word ik vandaag niet.
In 1740 Voltaire stayed in one of the apartments while he negotiated with Dutch publisher Jan van Duren about the Anti-Machiavel.
In 1754, King Frederick the Greatof Prussia sold his land-holdings in the Netherlands to Stadholder William V.
The son of Stadholder William V, who would become King Willem I, took up residence at the Oude Hof in 1792.
But when the French invaded the Netherlands in 1795, during the French Revolutionary Wars, he and his family were forced to flee to England.
The Oude Hof became the property of the Batavian Republicand hence state property, the status it has today. The gardens of the palace are open to the public.
