Siege of Batavia castle in 1619

Siege of Batavia castle in 1619
 
 

Siege of Batavia castle in 1619.
J.P. Coen decided in 1619 that Jakatra (later Batavia) would be a more suitable base for the VOC on Java than Bantam and set out to capture the city. The sultan of Mataram, under whose influence Jakatra fell, was self-evidently opposed to this and resisted strongly.
In the foreground left is the Dutch commander Pieter van den Broecke, who was taken prisoner by the sultan. The illustration is taken from the work 'Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indien' by Francois Valentyn.
