  1. And thanks Luc for your information. My question was indeed if it was a gift from the shogun. It is answered now.
  2. Many thanks for the reply's and the sources, it will help me with writing the essay. I had contact with the curator of Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden (Daan Kok) and he also confirmed it was a gift from shogun Tokugawa Iesada to Willem the third. Goodluck with your work Aleksander and Ruben!
  3. Hello, My name is Niels and I am a history student at Utrecht university. Nice forum you all have. Im writing a thesis about the Myochin Munekane armor in the Volkenkunde museum in Leiden. I discovered it's probably gifted by a Japanese shogun to the Dutch king William the third in 1855 after The Netherlands gifted a ship to Japan. But I found it hard to find a reliable source about this. Without source I can't use this interesting information. Does anyone on this forum have a source about this information? A newspaper, a letter, a reliable website, it's all just perfect. One sentence about the gift would be enough. Looking forward to your reply's. I added a photo of the armour for making sure where talking about the same piece. Kind regards, Niels
