"The Royal Residence"
In the mid-17th Century, painter Jacob van Campen was given the assignment to design a new town hall. The city council wanted a grand symbol of their leading role in Europe at that time - Holland's Golden Age - as well as their economic and civic power. The building had to make this clear for everyone to see. The Koninklijk Paleis became the biggest in Europe at the time of its construction. In 1808, this building was refurbished into a Royal Palace by the brother of Napoleon Bonaparte, Louis, king of the region during the French occupation. The Dutch royal family, the Oranje-Nassaus, receive royalty and dignitaries at the palace. After coronations, the new king or queen also present themselves to the citizens of the Netherlands from the balcony of the palace.
