I always thought that batavian history should be more developed. And here are some more details. I will hope much to come. In particular about the Infamous Four, very intersting. I think Batavian/Dutch language name should be added. does anyone here speaks Dutch?--Pedromoderno 18:15, 13 August 2007 (PDT)

Actually, all the names used are Dutch, save for the Prince (who is based on Belgium's King Leopold). Zahir 12:13, 5 November 2007 (PST)
I think he means, how do you say "Infamous Four" in Dutch? Benkarnell 12:29, 5 November 2007 (PST)

According to an automatic translator, the name for "Infamous Four" in Dutch would be "Beruchte Vier". Zahir 10:13, 8 November 2007 (PST)

Beruchte Vier wouldn't be incorrect, as a literal translation of "Infamous Four". However, somehow in Dutch that doesn't seem the most logical choice for naming the guys. Two alternatives I can think of: De Vier van ... (fill in the name of city where they prepared their coup, or the name of the prison where they were imprisoned after the war), or perhaps De Verschrikkelijke Vier (The Horrible Four), since we Dutch like alliterations. —IJzeren Jan Uszkie┼étu? 03:39, 10 November 2007 (PST)
