Britannica Concise

Third hereditary stadtholder (1625-47) of the Dutch Republic. He succeeded his half brother, Maurice of Nassau, as prince of Orange and count of Nassau. Like his father, William I the Silent, he continued the war of independence against Spain. By establishing hereditary succession to the stadtholdership for the House of Orange, he exercised semimonarchical powers. A successful strategist, he was responsible for the United Provinces' foreign policy, beginning negotiations that led to a favorable treaty with Spain in 1648.
