The Dutch East India Company was a fantastically influential player in Dutch and world history until its dissolution in 1798. The grandly designed headquarters of the Amsterdam chamber can still be found on the Kloveniersburgwal canal in Amsterdam's city center. This important historic building with its distinctive courtyard and Renaissance-style facades was the first building built for the Dutch East India Company and has also served as the seat of the Batavian Republic's colonial government. Currently, the building serves as one of many campuses of the University of Amsterdam.
