Seven Provinces of the Low Countries against the rule of the Roman Catholic

King Philip II of Spain, hereditary ruler of the provinces. The southern provinces initially joined in the revolt but later submitted to Spain. The religious "clash of cultures" built up gradually but inexorably into outbursts of violence against the perceived repression of the Habsburg
