Batavia was a ship of the Dutch East India Company (VOC).It was built in Amsterdam in 1628, and armed with 24cast-iron cannons and a number of bronze guns. Batavia was shipwrecked on her maiden voyage, and was made famous by the subsequent mutiny and massacre that took place among the survivors. A twentieth-century replica of the ship is also called the Batavia and can be visited in Lelystad, Netherlands. (wiki)
