William V, Prince of Orange (1748-1806) as a boy, surrounded by allegorical symbols. William was last Stadtholder of the Dutch Republic. His time as Stadtholder included war with both England (1780-4) and France (1793-5) as a result of which he took refuge in England as the French overran Holland and the Stadtholderate was abolished. William received territories in compensation in 1802, but died before regaining possession of Holland.
