Batavia (today’s Jakarta on the island of Java, Indonesia) was the headquarters of the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oostindie Compagnie in Dutch, or VOC). Founded  in 1619 by Jan Pieterszoon Coen, the company’s governor general of the Moluccas, the city featured magnificent homes of wealthy Dutch merchants as well as pestilential canals, which were the scourge of many visiting sailors whose ships stopped for supplies and repairs on their way home to Europe.
