History Fact

The Dutch-Scilly War lasted 335 years and had no battles or deaths.

n 1651 – 1986, the war was a by-product of the English Civil War and the decision of the Dutch to side with the Parliamentarians over the Royalists.

The Royalists had raided a few Dutch shipping vessels in revenge before fleeing to the Isles of Scilly.

The Dutch turned up, demanding reparations from the Royalists and, when they didn’t pay up, declared war.

But they decided to call it a day and go home pretty sharpish as they realized the Royalists didn’t have a penny to their names.

Only thing is they never declared peace with the Isles and just completely forgot they were at war.

Then, roughly 3 centuries later, historian Roy Duncan stumbled upon a footnote in Scilly about the war.

He invited the Dutch Ambassador for Great Britain to Scilly, where a peace treaty was negotiated and signed, bringing the war to an end after 335 years and no bitter bloodshed.
