Treaty of Breda, 1667

The Treaty of Breda, concluded on July 31, 1667, between England, the Dutch Republic, France, and Denmark, brought an end to the second Anglo-Dutch War (1665–67), in which France and Denmark had supported the Dutch. The Dutch formally ceded New Netherland to the English but retained their superiority in world trade and their monopoly in the spice trade.
