The Kingmaker by Ramon Gieling

Kingmaker, The

Two centuries ago the 42-year-old Willem I accepted the Dutch Crown. How the Netherlands became one country, with one king and one constitution, is worth a film in itself. But the story of Van Hogendorp, who paved the way for the King, who wrote the constitution on which the King swore his oath and who was discarded by the one whom he had brought into power, makes for a highly dramatic documentary story.
