Citation de Louise1200

The VOC was granted by its government not only the sole right to Asian trade but also the right to engage in areas of activity usually reserved for the state : establishing colonies, coining monies, maintaining private armies and navies, fighting the enemies of the Republic, signing treaties with Asian potentates, building forts in the islands they were trading with and even subjugating entire populations.
