The Batavian Republic was allowed to survive as a French ally, but was saddled with a huge war indemnity, agreed to maintain its battle fleet and a field army of 25,000, and also had to pay for a 20,000-man French garrison (although these 20,000 men were rarely in the Netherlands).
The Batavian fleet was mauled at Camperdown in 1798, part of a failed effort to invade Ireland, but the army put up a creditable performance the following year, defeating an Anglo-Russian invasion force in North Holland.
As Russian troops crossed the Dutch borders in 1813, a full-scale rebellion against the French broke out and the son of Willem V (who had since died), Willem Frederik, returned and became Willem I of a new Kingdom of the Netherlands.
