After a conflict with the Dutch over the pepper trade in 1619, the Dutch East India Company took the port of Jayakarta from Banten. These disputes continued, and in 1808, Herman Willem Daendels, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies, declared that the Sultanate of Banten had been absorbed into the territory of the Dutch East Indies. So when in 1813 the Sultan Muhamad Syafiuddin was forced to give up his throne, Banten Sultanate ceased to exist, which was the final blow that marked the end of the Sultanate of Banten. By the Dutchman Carel William Meredith van de Velde (1818-98), a sailor, doctor and watercolourist. From "Gezigten uit Nečrlands Indië, naar de natuur geteekend en beschreven".
