Antwerp at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

City (pop., 1995 est.: 456,000), capital of Antwerp province, Belgium. One of the world's major seaports, it is located 55 mi (88 km) southeast of the North Sea. Because it lies in the Flemish-speaking part of Belgium, it plays the role of unofficial capital of Flanders. It received municipal rights in 1291 and became a member of the Hanseatic League by 1315. As a distribution center for Spanish and Portuguese trade, it became the commercial and financial capital of Europe in the 16th cent. Following destructive invasions it went into decline, but began to revive after Napoleon's improvement of the harbor c.1803. It was part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (1815-30), then was ceded to Belgian nationalists. Its current economic life centers around shipping, port-related activities, and major manufacturing.
