Interesting to know, thank you.

Interesting; apparently the life of a foreign head of state is worth more than the king's own life.

Researches of the Amsterdam Museum have discovered that the gold that was used on the Golden Carriage came from Suriname. The country was a Dutch colony at the time.

Archives about the origin of the gold have been lost, though there have been strong rumours that the gold came from that country.

It is known that the wood of the carriage came from Java, the flax comes from Zeeland, ivory from Sumatra and the leather comes from Brabant.

It is still unclear from what mine the gold was extracted, what the working conditions of the workers were and if the gold was paid for.
