Btw Recently a Dutch movie was made about him: "Admiral". Michiel de Ruyter (2015) - IMDbIn my lounge there is a reproduction of an drawing of "council of war on board the de zeven provincen "
this battle has a great fascination for me , it was a bit of a shamble with sudden turn of fortune occurring everyday
as the English fleet limped home they were pursued by dutch ships
for several years , many English sailors from the ex- Commonwealth navy had joined their Dutch religious brothers
.....and were paid for a change
they were throwing abuse from the dutch ships at the pathetic papist dogs fighting for James

Unlike other Dutch movies I would really recommend this one (easily the best Dutch movie of the decade, though that isn't saying much). Historically also rather accurate as far as movies go.
And it has that Lannister guy as Charles II
