In an article published in 1967 in Tijdschrift voor Geschiedenis, the Dutch historian Riemer Reinsma described William I’s unifying policy regarding history education as a failure. According to Reinsma, William I and his government never succeeded in their plan to introduce one national history at school that contained both Northern and Southern history. In this article, William I’s policy concerning history education will be re-examined by means of new source material, such as school programmes and inspection reports. The main question that will be posed, is whether this policy was really aiming that much on unification as Reinsma has claimed?
