''Lodewijk Napoleon, a tragic ruler'' The Story of Louis Napoleon, first King of Holland 1778-1846.
An exhibition until 5 March 2017 at the Old Manor Amelisweerd will take an in-depth look at its former resident, Louis Napoleon (1778-1846), the first King of Holland. Set on the Dutch throne by his brother Napoleon I, Louis adopted the Dutch form of his name, "Lodewijk I" and was well-liked by his subjects, who appreciated his compassion and devotion, nicknaming him “Louis the Good".

He was forced to abdicate by his brother in 1810 and a week later Holland was annexed to France. The exhibition combines historic artworks with paintings created especially for the exhibition by the contemporary artist Armando.
