History

Curaçaoball was a 3-icon.png 3ball first spotted by Spanish-Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball in 1499. They enslaved most of the natives for labor without paying much attention to the clay itself.

In 1634, Dutch Republic-icon.png Dutch Republicball, who recently broke free from Spanish-Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball, invaded and occupied the island, colonizing it. The clay soon became an important port for slave trade due to its location.

​​​​​​The territories of ​Aruba-icon.png ArubaballBonaire-icon.png Bonaireball and Curaçaoball became united in 1815 under Curaçao and Dependencies-icon.png Curaçao and Dependenciesball where Curaçaoball was officially known as the Territory of Curaçaoball. This union was then succeeded by Netherlands Antilles-icon.png Netherlands Antillesball in 1954, now including Saba-icon.png SababallSint Eustatius-icon.png Sint Eustatiusball and Sint Maarten-icon.png Sint Maartenball. This time, Curaçaoball was under the name of the Island Territory of Curaçaoball.

The union dissolved and turned into Caribbean Netherlands-icon.png Caribbean Netherlandsball on the 10th of October 2010 when Curaçaoball and Sint Maarten-icon.png Sint Maartenball became more autonomous, while still part of Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball (Aruba-icon.png Arubaball had already done so earlier in 1986).

Nowadays, it is a constituent countryball in the Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball.
