Many people don't know the history of Bali.

Cornelis Houtman was the first Westerner who discovered it in 1597. In the following years various attempts followed to get into contact but were hardly successful.

The Dutch were already on Java and they were highly irritated by the salvage rights the Balinese claimed and executed with enthusiasm. Every ship that wrecked on he rocks was theirs, the crew murdered and the goods sold.

When the Netherlands were occupied by Napoleon, England was taking care of our colonies for the time being.

After the Dutch East Indies were" handed back" in 1816 the Dutch wanted to put the whole of the Archipelago under direct Government. If they wouldn't have done so, surely the English would have.

When in 1841 the Dutch fregat "Overijssel" run aground on the reef at Kuta they found an excuse to conquer Bali.

How it all went later on you can find in the next chapters.
