List of mayors of Amsterdam

  (Redirected from Mayor of Amsterdam)

Below is a list of Mayors (Dutch: burgemeesters) of Amsterdam, Capital of the Netherlands. The city had four burgomasters, serving four years. In the 17th and 18th century, a new mayor was elected by his colleagues (co-option), but his appointment had to be approved by the stadholder. In 1824, it was decided only one person could govern the cities of The Hague and Amsterdam at a time. Mayors of Dutch municipalities are appointed by the municipal council after the acceptance of the King's Commissioner of the province.[1]
