  • The Siege of Antwerp took place after fighting in the Belgian Revolution ended. On 15 November 1832, the French Armée du Nord under Marshal Gérard began to lay the Dutch troops there under David Chassé under siege. The siege ended 23 December 1832. The French had agreed with the Belgian rebels that they would not participate in the battle.Following the French army's first intervention in 1831, the Dutch withdrew from Belgium but left a garrison in the citadel at Antwerp, from which they bombarded the town. The Armée du Nord and its siege specialist François, Baron Haxo took 24 days to take this citadel and return it to Belgium. Leopold I of Belgium gave France several cannon of different calibres as thanks for this action and the Senate of France offered Gérard an épée d'honneur ("sword of honour"). A French monument to the French dead in the siege was sculpted in 1897, but the town of Antwerp refused to take it and it is now in Tournai. (en)
