After the Second Anglo-Dutch War of 1665–1667, England and the Netherlands agreed to the status quo in the Treaty of Breda. The English kept the island of Manhattan and the Dutch gave up their claim to the town and the rest of the colony. The English formally abandoned the island of Run in the East Indies to the Dutch, confirming their control of the valuable Spice Islands. New Amsterdam was renamed New York on September 8, 1664, in honor of the Duke of York, later James II of England.
