Why did just seven provinces in the Netherlands succeed in breaking free from Spanish rule?
i am doing the revolt of the netherlands course & i have no idea how to attempt this question.
i am supposed to write why the other ten provinces of the Netherlands did not succeed in breaking free from the Spanish rule, what limitations the Dutch experienced and any hidden strengths Spain had.
but i can't think of what to write; help would be much appreciated.
Who do you think it is...
