Napoleon Bonaparte, Eerste Konsul
The Dutch Wikipedia gives the title as Napoleon Bonaparte, Eerste Consul
The original text
Written in 1851 and published by Loman & Reudler, 1851 and in Volume 1, and later in Schimmel's Dramatische Poëzy by Loman & Verster.
However, although published a number of times after the first edition, Schimmel only gave the leading actor and manager Anton Peters (1812-1872) the rights to perform the play at the Amsterdamsche Stadsschouwburg in 1866.
