it after both Austria and I think the Netherlands.
a few short lived colonies in india, one in southern africa, and an entire STREET in china!
By the way, Dekkie, which Indian settlements are those exactly and when were they colonised?
Through the Imperial Company, they had trading posts at Mangalore, Karwar and Valapattanam and through the Ostend Company, they had trading posts at Covelong and Ichapore.
The first company I mentioned also attempted to consolidate a colony on the Nicobar Islands in 1778, which were abandoned by the Danish about twenty years beforehand due to a malaria outbreak. The colonists left the islands in 1785. There were two other (failed) attempts.
