The Anglo-Dutch Empire

The Anglo-Dutch Empire is a long and detailed timeline developed by Flocculencio, with a POD in the 17th Century. It is notable for the inclusion of detailed information on various cultural aspects of the TL through contributions from various members, notably Akiyama.

Premise and POD

With the Glorious Revolution, Wilhelm van Oranje-Nassau and his wife Mary took the throne of England. He was also the Stadthouder of the United Provinces of the Netherlands.

WI Wilhelm and Mary had a child who could claim overlordship of both realms? Could we see, after a time, the Netherlands being united with England and Scotland forming the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Gelre, Overijssel, Friesland and Groningen?

How would this affect their colonial policy? Possibly the English style of colonisation could soften the rather hard-headed purely mercantile drive of the Dutch.
