The French and the Flemish, rationally talking out their differences.

The French and the Flemish, rationally talking out their differences.

Episode 10 of History of the Netherlands is out now. We got a bit carried away with this one, and breached our conventional time limit by making a 50+ minute episode. It was just too good a story! This one brings the themes of the last few episodes together into a midnight massacre on the streets of Bruges and a pitched battle between the French aristocracy and the Flemish commoners.

Trigger warning: if you’re a patriotic French person, this episode may be hard to listen to.
