Hendrik Merkus de Kock
Hendrik Merkus de Kock (1779–1845) was a Dutch general, minister, and senator. In 1821, he commanded a military expedition to Palembang to suppress a local uprising. Later, as Lieutenant Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies, De Kock led the fight against Prince Diponegoro in the Java War (1825–1830), ultimately capturing his opponent through false pretenses at Magelang. For his military victories, de Kock was made baron in 1835, Minister of the Interior in 1836, and Minister of State in 1841.Painting: Cornelis Kruseman
