Until 1945 what is now Indonesia used to be called the Dutch East Indies, until firstly Germany invaded the Netherlands in 1940 and then Japan invaded much of East Asia until halted in Papua New Guinea and in the Pacific. At the end of WW2, the Indonesians wanted to run their own affairs and chose the former Dutch city of Batavia as their capital.
