Notes: [OLD WORLD] This scene illustrates an event c. 1633 in the life of Lord Michiel de Ruyter, the Dutch admiral who was sent to make a treaty with the Emir of Algiers, whose notorious Barbary pirates were disrupting the trade of the Dutch East India Company. De Ruyter's mission was successful, partially due to the presence of his large fleet of war ships.
