The Batavians Besiege the Roman Army Regiments at Vetera | Veen, Otto van
De Bataafse belegering van het Romeinse legerkamp Vetera
In 1613, the Dutch parliament (States General) commissioned Otto van Veen to paint twelve paintings depicting the revolt of the Batavians against the Romans in AD 69 and 70. These were displayed in Binnenhof, the central government building in The Hague. In the early years of the Dutch Republic, many compared their own revolt against Spain to the Batavian uprising.
