Leiden University, located in the city of Leiden in the Netherlands, is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Europe. It was founded in 1575 by William of Orange, also known as William the Silent, as a gift to the Dutch people for their resistance against Spanish rule. Initially, the university had faculties of Theology, Law, Medicine, and Philosophy, and attracted many prominent scholars, including René Descartes and Baruch Spinoza. In the 17th century, the university became famous for its emphasis on natural sciences, and notable scientists such as Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and Christiaan Huygens were associated with it.
