Points of Divergence : Dutch Caribbean overseas territories

This is an overview of timelines set on any of the current Dutch overseas territories in the Caribbean, that form an overseas part of The Kingdom of the Netherlands. These territories are : Aruba, Sint Maarten, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Bonaire. These are not only the last remnants of former Dutch colonies in Central and South America, but also the last remnants of the Dutch colonial empire worldwide.

NOTE n.1: All these overseas territories were part of The Netherlands Antilles until the 10th October 2010, when the old system was dissolved and replaced by the current one : Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten became “constituent countries” within The Kingdom of The Netherlands (the fourth country being The Netherlands proper), while the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba (aka “The Carribean Netherlands”) were granted the status of “special municipalities” within the kingdom.

NOTE n.2: If any of these territories would gain full independence from their mother country in the future, please move the territory in question (along with all the TL entries concerning it) to a new separate page. Don't forget to list such a new page alphabetically in the main part of the “Central America & The Caribbean” countries index.
