Louis Napoleon made Amsterdam the capital of his kingdom and assembled national treasures there. On 31 July 1806 he had important trophies, including captured flags, transported to Amsterdam from the Binnenhof (Dutch Parliament building) in The Hague. The convoy was headed by this banner, whose text translates as: ‘Louis Napoleon, King of Holland, presents to his capital Amsterdam these trophies seized by brave Netherlanders from their enemies’.
