Netherlands

The Netherlands is a small country situated in western Europe.  The North Sea is its western border, to the south is Belgium, and to the east Germany.  It has three island territories in the Caribbean Sea.  Amsterdam is its capital, and its main port Rotterdam is the largest port in the world.  About 50% of the country is situated at or marginally above sea level.  Most of the areas below sea level are man-made.  Large areas, called polders, have been reclaimed from the sea and these areas cover nearly 20% of the country.  It is a very liberal country, since 1848 being governed as a democracy and a constitutional monarchy.

The first stamps of the Netherlands were issued in 1852 depicting King William III.  While occupied by Germany during the 2nd World War, stamps were still issued.  Old stamps continued to be used after liberation in 1945, until new stamps were introduced in 1946.  Since then, regular stamp issues have continued, often depicting a member of the monarchy.
