The real Prins Willem left the harbour of Middelburg in 1651 for its maiden voyage to the East Indies. The ship sailed to Batavia (Jakarta) a total of five times before sinking – with no survivors – on its return home in 1662. The rudder is flanked by a city view of Middelburg, above which are the logo of the Dutch East India Company and a portrait of Prince William II.
