Chapter Summary

The 'Napoleonic period' was a time of great importance in Dutch history. In this chapter the popular protest in Holland in the Napoleonic period is studied in more detail. The focus is firstly on the popular protest in general. After this the attention is directed towards the introduction of the civil registration and the supposed popular protest against the implementation of this modern Napoleonic bureaucratic system. Then the historiography of the Napoleonic period is analyzed, especially the part that contributed to the construction of the images of general peace and passivity on the one hand and the specific opposition against official obligation to register and to use surnames on the other.
