During the period of the Dutch East India Companya (TM)s rule of the Spice Islands, Prince Nuku of Tidore stands out as the local hero who successfully opposed the VOCa (TM)s oppressive trade monopoly at the end of the eighteenth century. This study analyzes how he succeeded in regaining independence for the Sultanate of Tidore by creating an alliance with the English and his Malukan and Papuan adherents.
