The Eighty Years' War (1568–1648) divided the Low Countries into the northern United Provinces ( Belgica Foederata in Latin , the "Federated Netherlands") and the Southern Netherlands ( Belgica Regia , the "Royal Netherlands").

This was the theatre of most Franco-Spanish and Franco-Austrian wars during the 17th and 18th centuries.

About 30 million tons of moules frites are eaten every year in Belgium (that's 3kg a person), in a season that runs from September to February. The most common way to cook them is in white wine, shallots, parsley and butter ( la marinere ) although other recipes replace the wine with Belgian beer, add cream ( la crème ), or use a vegetable stock. Dispense with cutlery and eat as the Belgians do – use an empty shell like a pair of tweezers to scoop out the mussels.
