Admiral (2015)

“Wars are fought by many History is made by few”

Holland is the first republic in Europe. The royalist Orangists seek to put the young, unfit and alleged homosexual William III (‘King Billy’) on the throne, bringing the country to the verge of civil war. Michiel de Ruyter, a stubborn Republican, has to save the country from English threats as Commander of the Dutch fleet. He accomplishes this mission in two naval battles and in a spectacular and innovative way.

Meanwhile, behind the Republicans’ back, the Orangists are trying to strike a deal between the English King Charles II and the uncle of William III’s. The Republicans realize they have to take action to strengthen their political position. They come up with a daring plan. Michiel de Ruyter has to sail up the Thames, and attack and burn England’s fleet by surprise. The plan is a success, turning Michiel de Ruyter into the biggest living hero in Dutch history! England promptly signs a peace treaty with the Dutch Republic. But, the house of Orange is back in power soon…
