Chapter Summary

The first contact between the Dutch and the Vietnamese took place even before the foundation of the Dutch East India Company. In 1617, the Dutch were offered an opportunity to break the deadlock. In this year, the Dutch factories in Siam and Patani received letters from high-ranking mandarins of Quinam, inviting the Company on behalf of the Chúa to trade with their country. In 1613, the Hirado factory half-heartedly sought to establish relationships with both Vietnamese kingdoms when it assigned two Dutch merchants to put this plan into operation. By the early 1650s, constrained by the Gentlemen XVII’s insistence on ending the harmful conflict with Quinam, the High Government in Batavia decided to sign a peace treaty with the Nguyễn rulers.
