Project description
The Postdoctoral researcher will carry out research within the framework of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) funded research project ´Monarchy in Turmoil: Rulers, Courts and Politics in the Netherlands and Germany, c.1780 – c.1820’. How did rulers in the Netherlands and in adjacent smaller German territories adapt their regimes to ongoing change in legitimacy and decision-making during the transition period 1780-1820?

This postdoc project ‘Two Early Restoration Monarchies’ compares the courts of William I Prince/King of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands (1813/1815-c.1820) and Frederick William III King of Prussia (1810 – c.1820). After two decades of revolution and war, how did the Dutch and Prussian Restoration kings define their reinstated monarchical power between traditional legitimacy and the strengthened state bureaucracy, within a changed and volatile international context?
