Originally settled by Arawak Indians, Curaçao was seized by the Dutch in 1634 along with the neighbouring island of Bonaire.

Its prosperity was restored in the early 20th century with the construction of the Isla Refineria to service the newly discovered Venezuelan oil fields.

In 1954, Curaçao and several other Dutch possessions in the Caraibbean Sea were reorganized as the Netherlands Antilles, part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

In referenda in 2005 and 2009, the citizens of Curaçao voted to become a self-governing country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands . The change in status became effective in October of 2010 with the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles.
