Episode 6 – The Dutch Strike Back and Brazil Strikes Cold (Quick History #3) | Brazil Culture and History Podcast

We cover the rest of the 17th century in this episode. The Dutch recover from their initial failures to conquer Portugal’s Atlantic colonies and conquer northern Brazil along with several other colonies, including Angola. The Dutch were pretty decent rulers, but there were too many cultural differences.

Exciting times!
