Netherlands is the English translation of 'Nederland'. Nederlandliterally means 'low lying land' ('Neder' is an older word with thedefinition low and 'land' means land). The Netherlands arepartially located below sea level and that is the reason why it iscalled The Netherlands. In English and mult…iple other languages the country has beengiven the plural form, since you could say that The Nederlandsexists of multiple low lying lands. This was also the case till1815. Before that The Netherlands as a whole didn't exist. In other languages you can also see this translation of 'low lyinglands'. For example in French: 'les Pays-Bas', in German: 'dieNiederlande' and in Italian: Paesi Bassi. ( Full Answer )

The Netherlands is often called Holland. However, this is incorrectas Holland is just part of the Netherlands, not the wholecountry.
In Dutch, the language is called Nederlands (literally: Netherlandish ), which derives from the name Nederland . The origin of the word Nederlands is Dutch, but not so much the usage of the name itself. Of course, nether ('low') could simply refer to the geographical characteristics of the l…and, both flat and down river. Then, it merely describes the geographic situation. However, it might be observed that the specification neder- today sounds German rather than Dutch, and is cognate with German nieder as opposed to ober- ('upper'). One may liken this usage to the distinction between "upper" and "lower" in other geographical designations, like Upper and Lower Austria or Upper and Lower Silesia; it has nothing to do with the fact that part of the present-day Netherlands is a low-lying area.

By: Worldatlas The Netherlands is a very flat country with almost 25% of its land at, or below sea level. Low rolling hills cover some of the central area, and in the far south, the land rises into the foothills of the Ardennes Mountains. Vaalserberg, the country's highest point is located th…ere, rising to 322 m (1,053 ft). Over many centuries severe floods devastated the Netherlands, killing tens of thousands. Determined to save their homeland and reclaim it from the sea, the Dutch used countless windmills to pump water out of low-lying areas. They constructed man-made hills ( polders ), raising the level of farms and villages. In the early 1930's the damming off the sea efforts continued when the Afsluitdijk ( dike ) was built. In 1953, extremely high water ( once again ) caused nearly 2,000 deaths, mostly in the southern reaches of the country (Zeeland). Subsequently the country needed a major change, and so began the Delta Project. The plan ( project ) was to construct a large series of outer sea-dikes, and inner canal and river dikes to protect this fragile land from disastrous flooding brought on by the constant pressures applied to it by the North Sea. All would be supported by gigantic pumping stations designed to control and protect ground water levels. Today nearly 50% of the land here remains just above sea level. The massive and costly Delta project and other engineering marvels have to date prevented the North Sea from doing any significant ( additional ) damage. However, climate change and rising waters could prove daunting to the Netherlands in the future. Stretched along the northern coastline, the West Frisian Islands continue on to the northeast, becoming the German East Frisian Islands. These barrier islands, separated from the mainland by the Waddenzee, provide a small level of protection from the North Sea. The Netherlands is crossed by hundreds of miles of navigable canals. One of the most important is the North Sea Canal, as it enables ocean-going ships to reach the port of Amsterdam. Satellite picture here! Water, water everywhere, as the central and southern Netherlands are positioned at the delta of four major rivers, including the Rijn, Mass, Scheldt and Waal. The countrys largest lakes, Ijsselmeer and Markermeer are both manmade, created by dikes. ( Full Answer )

The whole of Netherlands is sometimes referred to as Holland. However, the original area that was Holland makes up two provinces of Netherlands which are North and South Holland. They are located on the West Coast of the Netherlands. See the link below.
After the war, the Dutch economy prospered by leaving behind an era of neutrality and gaining closer ties with neighbouring states. The Netherlands was one of the founding members of the Benelux( Be lgium, the Ne therlands and Lux embourg) grouping, was among the twelve founding members of the Nor…th Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), and was among the six founding members of the European Coal and Steel Community , which would later evolve, via the EEC (Common Market), into the European Union. The 1960s and 1970s were a time of great social and cultural change, such as rapid ontzuiling (literally: depillarisation), a term that describes the decay of the old divisions along class and religious lines. Youths, and students in particular, rejected traditional mores and pushed for change in matters like women's rights, sexuality, disarmament and environmental issues. Today, the Netherlands is regarded as a liberal country, considering its drugs policy and its legalisation of euthanasia. Same-sex marriage has been permitted since 1 April 2001. ( Full Answer )

1648 is when The Netherlands won independence. I don't know where people are getting the "1609", but that's B.S. I'm a student doing a project on The Netherlands, and I know for a fact, it's 1648... So there yuh go! (: Actually the Netherlands have a longer history than that. Its true that peace… of Munster you revered to was signed in 1648. Witch consisted of a merger between the northern netherlands and the southern netherlands. But these netherlands were already there and therefor the origins of the dutch independence has to be sought before the 80 year war. I believe the "independence" has its origins in the "Plakkaat van Verlatinghe" which was signed on 7-26-1581. It stated that: "The throne of Filips II was abandoned." And was signed by multiple provinces that make up the Netherlands today. ( Full Answer )
