About Neutral Neu-Moresnet

Neutral Neu-Moresnet

Neutral Moresnet arose after the definitive fall of Napoleon and after the Netherlands and Prussia did not agree on the possession of a valuable zinc quarry at Kelmis during the reallocation of Europe. Moresnet was known as a zinc exporter, a tax -, a smuggling haven and briefly as a potential Esperanto state. One of the cartographic features was that it had a four-country point with Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.
